Two-Car Accident (Fatality - 2013)
Clark County Authorities are investigating a two-vehicle crash that took the life of one of the drivers. On Monday, July 29, at about 1:25 p.m., the Clark County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call of a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of County Highway O and State Highway 29 in the Township of Hixon.
Initial investigation indicates that a vehicle driven by Clara S. Sandel, 91, of Thorp, was traveling south on CTH O and approached the intersection of State highway 29. Clara proceeded into the intersection and failed to yield to a vehicle driven by Evan L. Warren, 26, of Menomonie, going west. Evan swerved to try to avoid hitting the vehicle but struck it on the driver’s side. Both operators were wearing their seatbelts. Clara was pronounced dead at the scene by the Clark County Coroner Richard Schleifer.
The Owen-Withee Ambulance and Fire Department, the Spirit Air and Spirit Ground Ambulance, the Thorp Area Ambulance Service, the Clark County Sheriff’s Department, and the Wisconsin State Patrol responded to the scene. The Clark County Sheriff’s Department is continuing the investigation into the crash. This is the third fatality for Clark County in 2013.
