Deputies say driver in cow crash was not at fault

By  | 

AUGUSTA, Wis. (WEAU)-- Deputies say a crash involving a teenage driver who hit three cows and then ran into a house was likely not the driver's fault.

The crash happened Monday night on Highway 27, north of Augusta.
16-year-old Alexa Gutshall was driving the car when she hit three cattle that were loose on the highway. She then left the road and hit a nearby home.

The sheriff's office is still investigating why the cattle were loose but says initial reports show the driver was not at fault in the crash.

Gutshall was flown to the hospital and released. She later underwent surgery for a hand injury. The people in the home were not hurt.
