Afternoon crash causes minor injuries

Two vehicles collided on Tuesday afternoon just after 3 p.m. on County Rd. U just north of Tower Road in the town of Troy. Initial reports indicated that airbags had deployed and one driver was trapped inside their vehicle.

On-scene officials did not speculate on the cause of the crash but tentatively confirmed that River Falls Ambulance Service transported the two drivers to River Falls Area Hospital with minor injuries.

A tow truck loaded and carried away the two vehicles - one a minivan that was on the road, the other a four-door sedan sitting in the ditch.

Two ambulances, River Falls Fire Department, St. Croix County Sheriff's deputies and the Wisconsin State Patrol reported to the accident scene, which cleared about 30 minutes after being reported.
