TOWN of LAGRANGE, Wis. -

A 17-year-old girl suffered non-life-threatening injuries after a one-vehicle crash in the Town of LaGrange Thursday night.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department says county dispatch got a 911 call at 7:02 p.m. reporting a vehicle in a field and a man carrying a female from the vehicle.

Authorities say the driver, Miranda Bennett, 17, was driving southbound on Formica Road when she lost control of her vehicle, skidded off the road and hit a tree stump. The car came to a rest in a field.

The sheriff’s department says a passerby helped Bennett out of her vehicle and was then transported by Tomah Ambulance to Tomah Memorial Hospital.

Authorities say speed may be a factor in the crash.
