1 dead, 2 injured in Florence County accident

FLORENCE, WI— A Wisconsin teen was killed in a two-vehicle accident in the town of Florence Saturday.

It happened around 2 p.m. on US-2 near Westrin Road. An eastbound vehicle driven by an 18-year-old Spencer man crossed the centerline and hit a westbound vehicle head-on.

The teen was pronounced dead at the scene. Both people in the westbound vehicle—a Crystal Falls man and a man from Magnolia, Texas—were taken to Marshfield Medical Center-Dickinson. They’re reported to be in serious condition.

The crash remains under investigation by the Florence County Sheriff’s Office and Wisconsin State Patrol.
