Grant County Fatal

A Cassvile woman is dead following a one vehicle crash in Grant County. The accident happened on the morning of November 1st on Highway 81 and Rattlesnake Road in the Township of Beetown. The sheriff’s office says 60 year old Julie Kuenster was driving east on 81, when her vehicle left the road. Kuenster then over corrected and the vehicle slid across the highway in a counter-clockwise manor. Once on the north side of the highway, the rear passenger’s side struck a guardrail end and the vehicle spun. It then went head first into a rock wall embankment. Kuenster was entrapped and had to be extricated. She was transported to Grant Regional Health Center and then to UW Hospitals in Madison where she died Friday. Kuenster is the 10th person to die on Grant County roads this year.
