Two injured in accident

Lime Springs Fire Department and First Responders help two victims of a car accident on the state line, Sunday, Sept. 16.

Two individuals were flown to Gunderson Health System in LaCrosse after being involved in a car accident on the State Line Road north of Lime Springs on Sunday, Sept. 16, about 10:51 a.m.

Garren L. Brusse of Cresco was driving a 1995 Chevy north on Oak at a high rate of speed when he went into the ditch. The vehicle rolled several times before coming to rest upright on the opposite bank. He and passenger Richard Mackenburg, also of Cresco, were taken by Howard County ambulance to Regional Health Services, where they were transported to LaCrosse.

Sheriff Mike Miner said the person who called in the accident must have come upon it right away as the witness said there was still dust in the air.

No word on their conditions was available.

Howard County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the accident.
