6/18 Three People Injured Following Hit and Run Accident

A total of three people suffered minor injuries after their car was rear-ended in a hit and run accident Sunday afternoon. According to the accident report from the Washington County Sheriff’s Department, at about three forty a 30 year old Town of Kewaskum man rear ended an east bound car that was turning from County Road H to Sandy Ridge Road. The car that was struck was occupied by three Town of Barton residents, a 21 year old man and two women ages  16 and 18.  All three suffered injuries ranging from minor cuts to wip lash. They were transported to St Joseph’s Hospital for treatment. Immediately following the collision, the driver fled the scene and ended up stashing his pickup truck in a barn at a friend’s house at 8573 Kettle Moraine Rd. A witness followed the suspect to that address. When deputies arrived at the home, they approached with caution as one witness believed he saw a suspect near the vehicle with a long gun.  This was not confirmed.   After some initial questioning, the suspect admitted to driving and hitting the car. The suspect also admitted to stashing the truck in the barn.  He consented to a blood test and was arrested on a first offense OWI in addition to hit and run causing injury. The sheriff’s department is now waiting for the blood results, medical records from the injured, all of the witnesses to be interviewed and all the reports to be completed. Once everything is completed, additional charges may be filed.
