Vernon County Sheriff John B. Spears reports a single-vehicle crash occurred early Saturday morning, June 18, 2016, in the town of Jefferson.
Mark Alan McKibbin, age 29, of rural Westby, WI, said the crash occurred at approximately 12:00 AM while he was driving north on County Road B. McKibbin said he swerved to avoid striking a deer and lost control, on a curve, near Vikemyr Road.
The vehicle crossed the roadway and struck the end of a guardrail. The vehicle overturned and came to rest, upright, along the west side of the roadway. McKibbin was wearing a seatbelt and both airbags deployed.
McKibbin sustained non-life-threatening injuries, but did not immediately seek medical treatment. The crash was not discovered and reported until 9:30 AM. Assisting the Sheriff’s Office was the Viroqua Police Department. The accident remains under investigation by the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office. (Photo courtesy of Vernon Co. Sheriff’s Office)
