A rural Viroqua man was injured in a single-vehicle rollover accident at about 10:38 a.m., Wednesday, Dec. 6, on Hwy. B, 100 yards south of Park Road in the town of Jefferson.

John E. Jones was traveling south on Hwy. B when an unknown animal ran into the road. In an attempt to avoid hitting the animal, Jones swerved and lost control of his vehicle, causing the vehicle to go over an embankment and roll on its side. Jones was ejected through the passenger side window, according to the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office.

Jones was taken to Gundersen Health Systems in La Crosse via MedLink AIR.

The Viroqua Fire Department and Tri-State Ambulance service also assisted at the scene. The accident remains under investigation.
