A Sparta man was found guilty  in Monroe County Circuit Court on Dec. 20 of a charge of reckless driving – causing bodily harm on Jan. 21, 2020, when his tractor trailer struck a vehicle on N. McGary and North streets in Norwalk, near Scenic Bluffs Community Health Centers. 

Andrew J. Raymer, now 42, had been traveling southbound on Highway 71, and while entering a righthand curve, the tractor trailer ended up on its side and struck the second vehicle. Both drivers were transported to Mayo Health System in La Crosse. 

The Norwalk Police Department and the Wisconsin State Patrol investigated the accident. 

Earlier this month, Monroe County Circuit Court ruled that Raymer had to pay $3,898.56 in restitution for the victim’s glasses, ski jacket and dental work. 

A sentencing hearing is set for 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 27.
