Winter Weather to Blame for Two-Vehicle Accident

Sunday night's snow fall is to blame for a two-vehicle accident on Highway 93.

Crews responded to the accident on Highway 93 just north of Eleva in Eau Claire County. It happened just before 6:30 Sunday night.

Eau Claire County Sheriff deputies say 47-year-old Jeanne Malay of La Crosse lost control of her southbound SUV and trailer. That's when she slid into the path of an oncoming van driven by 35-year-old Jesse Myers of Chippewa Falls.

Malay wasn't injured; Myers and three children, a 9-year-old, 7-year-old and 17-month-old, were taken to a local hospital. They were all treated and released.
