Two-car Waupun wreck harms 5

After two vehicles crashed at the intersection between County Trunk TC and Highway 26, five individuals were left injured. The car accident was reported to the Fond du Lac County Communications center at 6:44 p.m., and it's still being investigated by law enforcement officials.

The crash occurred when a Fond du Lac man going west on County TC ignored a stop sign at the intersection. As he continued through the junction, he hit a south-headed car driven by a Madison woman. The Fond du Lac man and the female passenger in his front seat were both treated for injuries before being released from Waupun Memorial Hospital. The male Iowa native in rear seat of the car was also treated and released from a different hospital. The woman in the struck vehicle and her passenger, who happened to be her 14-year-old daughter, were both treated for non-critical injuries at St. Agnes Hospital. Although the daughter was subsequently released from medical care, the mother was transported to a different care facility in Wisconsin. 

Auto accidents don't have to involve very many vehicles or extremely high speeds to result in serious injuries. Bad road conditions and simple negligence can lead to various kinds of immediate and long-term harm. Neck and spine injuries and emotional trauma can take heavy tolls on accident victims.

Although it seems that the driver who failed to stop at the sign is at fault in this incident, the investigation may reveal new mitigating facts. It's impossible to determine who will come ahead in court beforehand, and as a result, many victims seek legal assistance with reconstructing their accidents and structuring their cases.
