On Sunday, November 24, 2013, at approximately 9:58 am, the Fond du Lac County Communications Center received a report of a multiple vehicle crash with injuries on STH 23 in the area of CTH W, in the Town of Forest.
The crash occurred as a westbound passenger vehicle, operated by an 18 year old St. Cloud woman, was struck from behind by a westbound SUV vehicle, operated by a 29 year old Plymouth woman, as it waited to make a left hand turn from STH 23 into St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. This impact caused the passenger vehicle to be pushed into the path of an eastbound passenger vehicle, operated by a 67 year old Fond du Lac woman, which could not avoid the collision.
All 6 persons from the vehicles involved did receive injuries which were believed to be non-life threatening at the time. The ages of the injured ranged from 12 years of age to 67 years of age.
