St. Croix County’s second traffic fatality of 1989 occurred Saturday morning at USH 63 and CTH G. David O. Troutman, 52 of Glenwood City, was pronounced dead at the scene.

After careful scrutiny of all available evidence in the Oct. 16, 1988 accident involving James Madden Jr. and two pedestrians, Robert Erickson and Karen Leisch-Gronlund, both of whom were killed in an accident. It appears that even though Madden’s blood alcohol level was .154 percent, all the evidence in this accident appears to indicate that the pedestrians’ deaths would have occurred whether or not Madden was under the influence of an intoxicant.

Many things were discussed at the Monday night Glenwood City Council meeting Monday night, including hiring a firm to do a feasibility study on construction on an addition to the fire hall,  setting up a time schedule to work on Syme Ave. this summer,  and approved a motion for a resolution to support a one dollar increase by the state on auto vehicle licenses to go to support ambulance services.
