Man in serious condition after UTV rollover near tri-state area

Posted: Updated:

A teen is in serious condition after a UTV accident near the tri-state area.

Officers with the Darlington, Wisconsin Police Department are investigating a UTV crash that caused serious injuries to a Darlington teen.  

On Saturday at 6:12 pm, multiple agencies responded to a report of a UTV rollover on Galena Street near the intersection of Ravine Street.

There were two people on it at the time of the accident.  The driver has been identified as 19-year-old Brayden McDonald and the passenger has been identified as 22-year-old Haleigh Sonsalla.

Investigators say McDonald was doing a u-turn on Galena Street when the UTV overturned.  

Sonsalla escaped serious injury and refused medical treatment at the scene, but McDonald has serious injuries and was transported by EMS to Memorial Hospital of Lafayette County.  He was later transported by MedFlight to UW Hospital.   

They say it is unlawful to operate an ATV/UTV on Galena Street as it is not an approved ATV/UTV route.  Alcohol appears to be a contributing factor in the crash.  The matter remains under investigation and charges are pending.
