One Injured in Sunday Night Crash
One man has been airlifted to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield following an accident near Highway 49 and County NN.
Portage Co. dispatch received the 911 call around 7:30 Sunday, according to Sgt. Kevin Sorenson. Deputies on the scene determined a Ford F-250 driven Christopher Hamilton, 27 of Iola, was traveling eastbound and turned left on to County NN without yielding for a westbound motorcycle driven by Rosholt resident James Witucki, 53.
Witucki, who according to Sorenson has “significant face and head injuries because he was not wearing a helmet”, was airlifted shortly after deputies arrived. Witucki’s condition is not currently known.
Hamilton was cited for failure to yield.
