Pedestrians still hospitalized after La Crosse crash

According to a recent media report, three pedestrians hurt in a recent La Crosse car accident are still hospitalized. Two are in care at Gundersen Lutheran and one is at the Mayo Clinic Health System.

In the crash, five people were hurt when a car driven by a Maquoketa, Iowa, man, 19 years old, slammed into the front of a pick-up truck on Losey Boulevard South near Denton Street when making a lane change. The driver of the car lost control, sheared off a speed limit sign, careened onto the sidewalk, hit the pedestrians and then crashed into a brick stanchion that held up a business sign.

Several days ago, there was a media report indicating that law enforcement officials would file charges against the driver of the car for allegedly driving at unsafe speeds in a 30 mph zone and for making an unsafe lane change.

The driver and his passenger, an 18-year-old from Waukon, Iowa, were also injured in the wreck. Both were transported to the Mayo facility where they were treated and released.

The ages of the pedestrians are 48, 63 and 22.

This is the latest in a series of serious pedestrian crashes in the city in recent weeks.

In early September, a visually impaired man, 49, was hit by a pick-up truck at 5:30 in the morning on Mormon Coulee Road near South 33rd Street. He died two days later.

The same day he died, a University of Wisconsin-La Crosse student from China, 23, was hit by a vehicle on La Crosse Street near Oakland Street. She died of her injuries the next day.
