Three injured in crash near road construction

Three people are sent to the hospital after authorities say one driver failed to follow construction zone instructions.

Crews were called to Highway 61 near Potosi, Wisconsin around 5:00 Friday afternoon.

Grant County deputies say the first car driven by 28-year-old Amanda Schnitzler was flagged to stop by a construction crew worker along the highway.

That's when another vehicle driven by 56-year-old David Jamison failed to obey the flag and slammed into the back of Schnitzler's vehicle.

Both Jamison and Schnitzler along with a passenger, 54-year-old Rita Harmon, were all sent to the hospital.

Authorities say charges are pending.
