Grant County Injury Accident

A rural Fennimore woman and Rural Cassville man suffered injuries Saturday in a two vehicle crash. Around 11:39 am the Grant County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of an accident on Hwy 81 near Laufenberg Lane located in the Township of Beetown. 41-year old Christopher Cooley was traveling westbound on Hwy 81 and at the same time 26-year old Kelsey Borcherding was traveling eastbound on Hwy 81. Both vehicles were negotiating a sharp curve on a hill and Borcherding crossed the center line and struck Cooley’s vehicle. Cooley’s vehicle left the roadway, overturned, and came to rest on its driver’s side, hanging off of a 100 foot embankment by a few small trees. The Borcherding vehicle continued eastbound after the crash and came to rest in the south ditch. Borcherding and the three children in the vehicle and Cooley were transported to Grant Regional Health Center for non-life threatening injuries. Borcherding was cited for Operating Left of Center, Operating a Motor Vehicle without Insurance, and Non Registration of a Motor Vehicle.
