TOWN OF GLENWOOD — A violent collision just past Noon on Thursday, October 22 in the Town of Glenwood between a St. Croix County plow truck and a passenger vehicle has injured three including two young children.

Glenwood City Fire and EMS were dispatched to 2843 County Road G in the Town of Glenwood at 12:07 p.m. Thursday for the crash between a plow truck and vehicle. Both Glenwood City Ambulances did respond to the scene, which was just west of DADDS Detour, along with the Glenwood City Police Department, the St. Croix County Sheriff’s Office and the Wisconsin State Patrol.

A young woman and her two children, ages three months and thee years old according to a bystander that had stopped at the scene to render aid and spoke with the mother prior to the arrival of emergency services, were reported injured in the crash. The driver of the plow truck was not injured. All involved were wearing seat belts including the children who were properly secured in safety seats. The Eau Claire office of the Wisconsin State Patrol is investigating the accident and as of Monday afternoon they did not have information available for the press about the accident.

With falling snow and sleet making the roadway slippery, the woman allegedly lost control of her vehicle, which was westbound, crossed the center line, and struck an eastbound St. Croix County Highway Department plow truck. The impact sheered off the front axle of the truck and pushed it underneath the carriage and completely destroyed the front of the passenger vehicle with its engine ending up behind the vehicle in the north side ditch. The truck came to rest on the south side shoulder.

Both Glenwood City Ambulances took the injured to an area hospital.

Go Fund Me Accoount Set Up

A Go Fund Me account has been set up for the driver of the vehicle that collided with a St. Croix County plow truck. The Go Fund Me account was set up by Karlee Roach, who wrote: “My best friend Tiffany Neely was in a bad accident. Right now her two beautiful children are healthy and have been sent home but Tiffany remains at Regions hospital. So far I know she will need a facial surgery and teeth replacement. These both can be very expensive and now Tiffany will be out of work for a while. Anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated and would help care for heir medical bills and bills at home.”

As of Tuesday morning the fund has raised $1,560 of a $7,000 goal.
