Two people have been seriously
injured after a two-vehicle crash on
Highway-18 Thursday night (3/27) between
Fennimore and Montfort.
Grant County authorities say 52-year-old
Kim Cleary of Highland and 61-year-old
Alan Tinderholt of Waukon, Iowa are in
the I C U at UW-Hospital in Madison.
Cleary was reportedly driving east and
Tinderholt was driving west when the
two-vehicles collided head-on. The road
was blocked for two-and-a-half hours
because of the crash.
Grant County authorities say their
initial investigation shows Tinderholt
fell asleep just before the crash, and that
Cleary admitted to drinking alcohol before
driving…and alcohol may be a contributing
factor. The crash remains under investigation
by the Grant County Sheriff’s Department
with help from the Wisconsin State Patrol.
Helping at the scene were Fennimore
Police, Fire and E M S, the Montfort E M S
and the Tri-State E M S, the State Patrol,
and UW-Madison Police. Doan’s Body Shop
and Collision Specialists also assisted.
