WASHBURN COUNTY —  A crash occurred in the Town of Spooner, Washburn County, at the intersection of County Highways A and K, just north of the City of Spooner on Tuesday, November 12, 2019, resulting in injuries to one of the drivers.

A crash report from the Washburn County Sheriff’s Office states that a 2014 Ford Focus headed eastbound on County Highway A from the Spooner High School made a right-hand turn onto County Highway K into the path of a Superior Fuel Company propane truck that was traveling southbound on K.

The driver of the propane truck told Deputies who responded to the scene that he applied the brakes of the truck, but was unable to come to a stop before colliding with the Ford Focus. Following the initial collision, the Ford Focus spun before being propelled into the ditch.

Emergency personnel were able to extricate the female driver from the Ford Focus, a Junior year student with Spooner Area School District (SASD), and she was transported for medical care. Her condition at the time of this post is not known to DrydenWire.com.

SASD Superintendent Dr. David Aslyn told DrydenWire.com that prayers are being sent for she and her family and best wishes for a speedy recovery.

"We were very sorry to learn that one of the members of our awesome Spooner Rails student body was injured in an accident after school on Tuesday," said Superintendent Aslyn. "Thoughts, hopes, and prayers from all across the District go out to her and her family. We send our best wishes for her complete and speedy recovery. She is missed by her friends and school staff and we look forward to her return."

The driver of the Ford Focus told Deputies and her mother that she was checking her schedule prior to the crash, and although she had looked, she had not seen the propane truck.

The driver of the truck did not sustain any apparent injuries according to the Sheriff’s Office crash report. A Washburn County Sheriff’s Office call log states that no leaks were discovered from the propane truck which was towed from the scene.
