Monroe County Sheriff Peter Quirin reports a motor vehicle crash that resulted in injuries to two parties. The crash occurred at about 3:25pm on July 12th, 2014 on Hwy 71 just east of Locust Rd. in the Town of Wilton.

The driver and his 16 year old passenger Shauna L. Erickson of Westby were transported by Wilton Ambulance to Tomah Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Both were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.
Assisting the Sheriff’s Department at the scene were the Wilton Ambulance, Wilton Fire department, and the Monroe County 911 Dispatch center.
