At about 9:03pm Richland County 911 received reports of a crash on US 14 at County Hwy TB in Buena Vista Township near Sextonville. A 2001 Ford Escape being operated by Bonnie Guitweiler of Richland Center was traveling westbound on US 14 when it rear ended a piece of farm implement attached to a tractor which was stopped in the roadway. The tractor, owned and operated by Jason Fuller of Kaukauna, was stopped in traffic on US 14 waiting to turn south onto County Hwy TB when the collision occurred. The tractor was pulling a large lime spreader which was hauling several thousand pounds of lime and compost. There were lights attached to the rear of the spreader, however they were not working. After the impact, the tractor unit continued from the scene to a location on County Hwy TB. It was followed by a witness to the crash who called law enforcement. A Deputy made contact with the tractor operator who indicated he did not realize the crash occurred. The operator of the car was transported to the Richland Hospital with minor injuries. The car suffered extensive damage. The investigation continues.
