At 10:43 PM on Thursday deputies along with Brodhead Police, Fire and EMS responded to a one vehicle crash on a gravel road along the Raceway north of CTH F, Town of Decatur.

Investigation revealed that a vehicle operated by a 17-year-old Monroe resident was southbound on the gravel road when he lost control while negotiating a slight curve.

The vehicle left the gravel roadway and collided with a tree head on, causing the vehicle to spin into the raceway. The vehicle came to rest in the Raceway in about 3 feet of water.

The driver sustained injuries, but refused treatment at the scene; his seatbelt was used and the airbag did deploy.

His 19 and 17-year-old passengers from Brodhead also sustained injuries and were transported to an area hospital.

One of those passengers was not wearing a seatbelt.

The vehicle sustained severe overall damage and was towed from the scene. The driver was cited for Reckless Driving and released pending court.
