A rural Prairie du Chien woman was injured in a crash that shut down Highway 18 south of the city for an hour and a half Wednesday evening, Sept. 30, according to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department.
The Crawford County Sheriff’s Department was notified of the two-vehicle accident near the intersection of Highway 18 and Old Highway 18, at 4:56 p.m. in Bridgeport township.
A 2011 Lincoln automobile, owned and operated by Jean Moret, 55, was westbound on Highway 18. Moret signaled a left turn onto Old Highway 18 and had slowed to wait for oncoming traffic when she was rear-ended by a 2013 Freightliner truck owned by Ursa Major Corp., of Waukesha, and operated by Joshua Cook, 25, of Boscobel.
The Moret vehicle ended up in the ditch on the south side of the highway. Moret was extricated from her vehicle and transported to Crossing River Health for her injuries. Cook refused medical attention.
