MANAWA, Wis. (WSAU) - An elderly couple is lucky to be alive after a head-on crash in Waupaca County Monday.
Sheriff’s investigators say the couple from Almond was in their car traveling eastbound when they crossed the center line of highways 22 and 54 into the path of a westbound semi truck. The truck driver from Argonne took evasive action, but the vehicles still collided.
Deputies say the truck driver was not injured and the elderly couple was taken to Riverside Hospital in Waupaca for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators say alcohol was not a factor in this crash.
