Car strikes hunters along road, one dead

by

GILMAN, Wis. (WSAU) -- An Illinois man is dead and two others injured after car struck two pedestrians in Taylor County Friday afternoon at about 5:00 p.m.

This happened at County Line Road and Lou Avenue about nine miles west of Gilman. The incident was very close to the Chippewa-Taylor county line.

Deputies say several hunters were standing on or near the edge of the road when the vehicle approached them at a high rate of speed. All but two of the hunting party were able to jump out of the path of the vehicle.

Taylor County Sheriff’s deputies say a 52-year-old man from Roscoe Illinois was pronounced dead at the scene. Another man from Roscoe that is 53-years-old was taken to Memorial Health Center in Medford, and then flown by Life Link 3 Helicopter to Aspirus Wausau Hospital for further treatment of leg injuries.

The driver of the car is a 42-year-old resident of Sheldon, Wisconsin. This person was flown from the scene by Mayo Helicopter directly to Eau Claire Luther Hospital.

Gilman Fire and Ambulance, Medford Ambulance, Wisconsin State Patrol, Chippewa County Sheriff’s Department and Taylor County Sheriff’s Department officials responded along with the two medical helicopters. When the initial call for help was made, dispatchers couldn’t tell which county the incident occurred in, so everybody responded.
