12/17/17 – Two people were injured, including an eight-year-old child, in a two-vehicle collision Sunday afternoon in the Town of Theresa. The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office dispatch center fielded multiple calls around 3pm reporting the crash one mile north of the village. A 35-year-old Reeseville man was westbound on State Highway 28 when he reportedly failed to yield to oncoming traffic and collided with a car that was northbound on State Highway 28/67/175. East and westbound traffic at that intersection is controlled by stop signs and north and southbound traffic is not controlled. The Reeseville man was taken by ambulance to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. A child passenger, the only other occupant in the vehicle, sustained what authorities say are possible life-threatening injuries and was taken by paramedic ambulance to a children’s hospital. A 60-year-old Theresa woman, who was the lone occupant of the northbound vehicle, was taken by ambulance to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. There intersection was closed for around two hours as the accident scene was investigated and cleared. This was the second serious injury crash at the same intersection in two weeks. Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt says failing to yield right-of-way from a stop sign and lack of restraint use were factors in both crashes. The Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Theresa Fire Department and EMS, Mayville EMS, Fond du Lac Paramedics, Theresa Police Department, and the Dodge County Emergency Response Team. Names are expected to be released in the next day.
