Three people were injured in a car accident near Sparta. All three had to be rescued from the Jaws of Life after a two-car accident on Highway 16.
According to the sheriff’s department, a car driven by a man from Sparta hit a woman’s car as she was turning off Highway 16 on to I-90. The man told police officials that he only looked away from the road briefly before hitting the car. The woman driver and her two passengers were removed from the vehicle and transported to the hospital by ambulance.
Car accidents can happen at the blink of eye and can have traumatizing effects on all involved. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims.
