TOWN OF GLENCOE — A Fountain City man was airlifted to Gundersen Health System in La Crosse after he was injured in a semi vs. truck collision on Hwy. 95 Wednesday morning.

According to a report from the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Department, Steven D. Kenney, 31, was traveling northbound in a 2001 Chevrolet K1500 truck pulling a utility trailer on River Road and failed to stop at a stop sign at the Hwy. 95 intersection. A 2002 Freightliner tractor-trailer driven by William A. Sluga, 45 of Independence, struck Kenney’s vehicle on the driver’s side cab area.

Kenney was not wearing a seat belt, according to the report.

Buffalo County Sheriff Michael Schmidtknecht said Thursday that Kenney was released from the hospital. The accident remains under investigation, but it is likely Kenney will be ticketed for failure to stop.

Assisting Buffalo County Sheriff’s deputies at the scene were the Arcadia Police Department, Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Department, Wisconsin State Patrol, Arcadia Fire Department, Arcadia Ambulance, Medlink Air and Schula’s Towing and Kabus Towing.
