A Four-Vehicle Accident Sends Three To Hospital

A head-on collision Sunday evening sends three people to the hospital. Fond du Lac PD was called out shortly after 6:00 p.m. for a four-vehicle accident on Hwy. 23 East near Whispering Springs Dr.

Police logs show the driver of one of the vehicles, a 28-year old female, was heading west on Hwy. 23, while a 38-year old female with two children was operating a vehicle traveling behind her. A third vehicle, operated by a 47-year old male was stopped in the eastbound traffic lane, waiting for a car to turn onto Whispering Springs Dr., when a fourth vehicle slammed into the back of that car.

That caused the vehicle that was stopped, to crash head-on into the vehicle of the 28-year old female.

The driver that caused the accident, a 29-year old male, was arrested and cited for an OWI, his fourth offense, along with three other charges. One female received minor injuries, while another female suffered broken bones to her pelvis, hip, arm and leg and was transported to the hospital and then taken to Froedert Hospital in Milwaukee. Two children, a 2-year old male and a 4-year old female, were not injured.
