4 injured in Trempealeau County after vehicle rear-ends buggy

From the What you missed this week in notable La Crosse crimes and court cases series

Four people were injured Sunday after a vehicle rear-ended a horse-drawn buggy in Trempealeau County.

A vehicle driven by Elisha Reetz, 37, Black River Falls, struck a buggy with four occupants — Edna Wengerd, 41, Fannie Wengerd, 43, Lizzie Wengerd, 33, and William Wengerd, 39, all of Whitehall — at about 10:45 p.m., according to the Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Office.

Both the vehicle and buggy were damaged, and the four occupants of the buggy were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Trempealeau County deputies believe inattentive driving was a factor in the crash; however it is still under investigation.
