6 injured in head-on crash
Highway 35 in Onalaska
Six people were sent to the hospital Friday night after a head-on crash in Onalaska.
It happened shortly before 8 p.m. on Highway 35 near Spruce St. That's right by Season's on the Lake.
Police say Core Degaetano was driving in the northbound lane when he crossed the centerline and hit a Honda coupe head-on. Five people in the car suffered injuries, including two adults and three children.
The female passenger in the car had to be extracated with "serious" injuries. The extent of the other passengers' injuries are not known at this time.
Police do not believe alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash. Although, investigators do suspect Degaetano was involved in another minor crash on Highway 35 just moments before the head-on collision.
The crash remains under investigation.
