Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/11/2018
Two people have died following an accident involving four vehicles last weekend near Holmen.
The La Crosse County Sheriff's Department says a milk truck was heading north on Highway 53 when a car pulled out in front of it. When that vehicle stopped along a guardrail, the milk truck crossed over the center line and hit another vehicle head on before
running through the guardrail and down an embankment, where it overturned. A fourth vehicle then struck the other cars.
Authorities later confirmed that Guo Song Lu, 72, of Holmen, and Julie Macomber, 70, from Augusta, died in the crash.
The accident happened at the intersection of Highway 53 and Sylvester Road around 3:00 p.m. The driver of the milk truck was not hurt.
