Police seek man who fled after La Crosse area crash injured three

Law enforcement officials are looking for a Wisconsin man who they accuse of causing a car accident that left three people injured about 30 miles southeast of La Crosse.

If he's apprehended, the Prairie du Chien man, 33 years old, will face questions about why he fled the scene of the two-car crash near Viroqua on Highway 56.

Police say the man was headed east on the highway in Vernon County shortly before two in the morning this past Saturday when his vehicle went across the center line and smashed head-on into a car driven by a De Soto woman, 57.

Both the woman and her passenger, her son, 28 years old, were injured in the crash and taken to a nearby medical facility. She was treated and released from Vernon Memorial Hospital; her son was transferred to La Crosse's Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center with unspecified injuries.

The day after the crash, officials at the medical center listed him in fair condition, a media source reported.

Both he and his mother were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.

The man wanted by police also had a passenger in his vehicle. The Chaseburg man, 32, who was not wearing a seat belt, was treated and released at the scene of the crash, sheriff's department officials said.

The driver ran from the scene, according to those officials. They said they don't know if he was also injured in the collision.
