-One child is dead after the buggy they were riding in was involved in a crash on County Highway H west of Hi Line Ave in the Township of Fremont.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office received a call of the crash at about 8:48am, on Wednesday December 5th. An initial investigation indicates that a car, being driven by a 17-year-old female, was traveling east on Highway H behind another vehicle. As she was driving she saw the vehicle ahead of her swerve to the left and saw a horse drawn buggy traveling east along the side of the road. She struck the buggy with the front right corner of her car. The buggy had 4 passengers, all children, at the time of the accident. Their ages were 13, 10, 8 and 6. All the children were ejected from the buggy after the crash. The buggy came to rest in the south ditch. The 8-year-old died as a result of their injuries. The 10 and 6-year-old received incapacitating injuries and the 13-year-old received non-incapacitating injuries.

The 17-year-old operator was alone in her vehicle, is from the Neillsville area and was wearing her seatbelt. The Chili Area First Responders and Fire Department responded to the scene with the Marshfield Fire Department Ambulance, Life Link helicopter, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and Wisconsin State Patrol. This is the 6th traffic fatality in Clark County for 2018. The Clark County Sheriff’s Department is not releasing names because of the ages of everyone involved.
