A single-vehicle crash occurred late Wednesday morning, November 6, 2019, at approximately 10:45 AM, in the town of Christiana. Miranda R. Ingles, age 18, of rural De Soto, WI was operating a full-size pickup truck on Lovaas Ridge Road, near Westby, WI.
Ingles lost control on snow/slush. The vehicle spun around and went off the west side of the roadway and struck a utility pole. The wood pole was severed just above grade level, but the electrical lines remained intact.
Miranda Ingles and her passenger, Cheyenne R. La Mere - Volden, age 18, of rural Westby, WI were both wearing seatbelts. Ingles sustained possible injuries, refused medical treatment, but sought medical treatment, on her own, the following day. La Mere - Volden did not complain of any injuries.
Vernon Electric Cooperative was on scene while the vehicle was removed and power outages may have occurred when the pole was replaced.
