No citations following Saturday's crash into hospital


WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (WSAU) -- There won’t be any citations issued following Saturday’s vehicle crash into a hospital wall.

A sports utility vehicle driven by 29-year-old James Pecher was eastbound on Riverview Expressway in Wisconsin Rapids when he blacked out, and drove across oncoming traffic lanes, a parking area, and into the south wall at Riverview Hospital. The impact damaged a hallway and small waiting room in the hospital’s Emergency Department.

Police Chief Kurt Heuer says the cause of the accident is believed to have been triggered by a medical condition suffered by Mr. Pecher.
