Three people were taken to St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac following a three vehicle accident on State Highway 23 west of County Highway W in the Town of Forest Thursday afternoon. Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s officials say 18-year-old Alyssa Wodack of Mount Calvary, 19-year-old Mercedes Specht and her passenger 21-year-old Hailey Laughlin both from Iowa were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Wodack was stopped to make a turn into the B & B Gas Station when Specht ran into her, then 41-year-old Sara Trepanier of Fond du Lac ran into Specht’s vehicle. Trepanier was not injured. Investigators say inattentive driving and following too closely appear to be factors in the accident, which was reported at 4:40 p.m.
