Wrong turn on to highway causes accident


A motorcyclist is injured after an accident in Grant County.

It happened on Highway 151.

Mary Johnson, 84, of Platteville mistakenly turned northbound into the southbound passing lane on Highway 151.

She attempted to make a U-turn and correct the direction of her vehicle, but in the process, her car was hit by a motorcycle.

The motorcyclist was Brent Edge of Dickeyville. He was taken to the hospital.

Johnson and her passenger were not injured.

Johnson received several citations, including wrong way on a divided highway.

The accident remains under investigation, because deputies say alcohol was a possible factor in the crash.
