Washburn (30 November 1967)

Mrs. Harry Kissling met with a car accident Sunday afternoon near Dexterville as she was taking a passenger to Madison. A couple of deer ran across the road, one from each way, and as she tried to avoid hitting them caused the car to overturn a couple of times, badly wrecking her car.

The passenger was shaken and bruised some, but Mrs. Kissling had a fractured collarbone, was badly bruised and suffering from shock. The full extent of her injuries had not been determined at this report. They were taken to a Wisconsin Rapids hospital.
