A vehicle crash on State Highway 23 between Green Lake and Princeton sent two people to the hospital last week Saturday.
According to Green Lake County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Matthew Vande Kolk, a semi hauling corn was traveling eastbound on 23 near Princeton Road around 5:42 a.m. last week Saturday, using the westbound lane of traffic.
A “cargo-style van” was traveling westbound on 23, when it observed the semi approaching in the same lane and took action to avoid the collision, Vande Kolk noted.
“The subsequent collision was a sideswipe collision,” he said. “The van had three occupants and came to rest on the roadway. There were two occupants in the semi, which entered the ditch and struck some trees and brush.”
The occupants of the semi were not transported to a hospital, Vande Kolk noted.
One of the occupants, a 32 year old male, of the van was airlifted by ThedaCare Neenah and another, a 31 year old male, was transported by ambulance to ThedaCare Berlin, according to Vande Kolk.
“The remaining occupant was not transported to a hospital,” he said.
Berlin Ambulance, Green Lake/Brooklyn Fire Department, Green Lake First Responders and ThedaStar all provided assistance at the scene.
Vande Kolk added that the accident remains under investigation.
