A semi tractor trailer was pulling out of a driveway onto US Hwy 14, west of Boaz, when a smaller passenger car that was traveling east struck the semi tractor in the rear axel. As passers by were checking on the injured people in the car, another eastbound vehicle collided with the semi trailer, coming to rest partially under the trailer. There was total road blockage. The occupants of the passenger car were assisted out of the vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle was pinned in the wreckage and was extricated by the Richland Center Fire Department’s Jaws of Life. The driver of the semi was not injured. The three injured persons were transported by Richland County EMS to the Richland Hospital. One party was later flown by Med Flight to a Madison Hospital and another taken by Baraboo Ambulance Service to Madison. Their conditions are not known at this time.
The investigation is on going at this time. No names have been released.
The Sheriff’s Department was assisted at the scene by Richland County EMS, Baraboo EMS, Med Flight, Richland Center Fire Department, Richland County Highway Department and the Wisconsin State Patrol.
