On June 23rd, 2020, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department responded to a report of a one vehicle crash on US hwy 14 just east of Bohman Drive. Upon arrival, deputies located two females that had been ejected from the vehicle and a male party who was also involved in the crash nearby. Emergency aid was provided to the injured parties until Richland and Baraboo EMS arrived on scene. During a subsequent investigation of the crash, it was determined that the vehicle was traveling westbound on US Hwy 14 when the vehicle left the roadway, striking a light pole and eventually rolling over. Speed and intoxication are believed to be contributing factors in the cause of the crash. Both females were later transported to UW Hospital in Madison due to injuries sustained in the crash and the male was treated for minor injuries and released from Richland Hospital. Assisting on scene were the Richland Center Police Department, Richland Center Fire Department, Richland EMS, and Baraboo EMS. Charges have been referred to the Richland County District Attorney’s Office.
