On Saturday, August 23, 2008 at approximately 4:22 p.m., the Jackson County Sheriff's Office received a report of a crash involving an ATV and a motor vehicle on Fish Creek Road in the Township of Knapp. The ATV driver identified as Karen Gibson, age 60 of Brodhead, Wis., was killed in the crash. A female child passenger on the ATV received non-life threatening injuries. The operator of the motor vehicle identified as Phillip J. Holloway, age 23 of Warrens, Wis., was taken into custody and is currently being held in the Jackson County Jail pending possible charges related to the crash. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this incident.
There were three other crashes reported in Jackson County over the weekend which are believed to be alcohol related in nature. These crashes remind us of the consequences of drinking and driving along with the tragic results to the victims involved. Sheriff Duane Waldera strongly encourages everyone to avoid drinking and driving; and to remember the importance of safe and responsible driving.
