Five injured in Highway 33 car crash near La Crosse

Five people were injured in a car accident when a Bangor woman reportedly failed to stop her vehicle at a stop sign on a Monroe County highway, law enforcement officials said.

The woman reportedly went through a stop sign on Highway Y at the intersection with Highway 33 in the town of Portland. Two vehicles were in the Sunday afternoon crash, according to a media report.

Monroe County Sheriff's Department officials said a car driven by a rural Bangor woman, 51 years old, was southbound on the highway at about 3:40 yesterday afternoon when she drove into the intersection without stopping.

Her car hit a minivan driven by a Cashton man, 76. Inside his vehicle were three passengers: a woman, 67 years old, also of Cashton, a Norwalk man, 56, and a Norwalk woman, 54 years old.

The Cashton man was injured and taken by medical helicopter to Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center here in La Crosse, as was the Bangor woman. Both were reportedly in stable condition early this morning, according to the media source.

The others injured were taken by ambulance to Mayo Clinic Health System-La Crosse.

The Wisconsin State Patrol said the cause of the crash is under investigation by its officers as well as by officers with the Monroe County Sheriff's Department.

In similar cases, those who are injured by the negligence of another driver can receive compensation to cover medical bills, loss of property, lost wages and other damages.
