On July 3, at 9:38 p.m., the Crawford County Communications Center received a report of a crash on Highway 27 about one-tenth of a mile north of Gran Grae Road in Prairie du Chien Township. 

Matthew Wojciechowski, 33, Wauzeka, was operating a 2011 Chevy Impala southbound on Highway 27. This section of highway is closed due to road construction. Wojciechowski stated he was travelling southbound at highway speeds of 55 to 60 mph when he hit a sand pile in the southbound lane. Wojciechowski’s vehicle continued over the embankment on the east side of the highway before coming to rest in a hay field. 

Wojciechowski claimed no injuries from the crash. Wojciechowski will be cited for unreasonable and imprudent speed in a construction zone and not wearing a seatbelt. 

Wojciechowski’s vehicle was removed by Milo’s Towing with the assistance of the land owner.
