Three People Injured in Crash with Police Officer

Posted on October 29, 2007 2:10 am under Car Accidents

Everyone driving a car could be part of an auto accident, even those who are seen as part of the force that’s charged with protecting the safety of those on the road.  That proved to be the case recently in Mauston, where three people were injured in an accident with a police officer’s squad car, as reported by WiscNews.com.

According to a press release, Lt. Michael Jackson, with the Mauston Police Department, failed to yield the right-of-way and struck the driver’s side door of a van at the intersection of Division Street and Grayside Avenue.

The accident caused the 1999 Chevrolet van to spin and eventually roll onto its top.

The driver of the van, 47-year-old Thomas Lucht, of La Valle, suffered a head injury. Also injured was Sarah Lucht, who suffered moderate bruising and minor cuts, and Leo Lucht, 80, who suffered moderate bruising. All three passengers were transported by ambulance to Hess Memorial Hospital in Mauston. Jackson also suffered minor injuries from the accident.”
