Fatal Crash in Taylor County

Fatal Crash in Taylor County


 On Wednesday, September 21st at 10:55 A.M., the Taylor County Sheriff's Office received a report of a one vehicle accident with injuries on County Highway A, just east of Larson Drive in the township of Holway.           Taylor County deputies, along with the Stetsonville Fire Department, Stetsonville First Responders, Taylor County Coroner and Medford Ambulance were dispatched.

  Upon arrival at the scene, deputies found a deceased male partially ejected from the vehicle; no other occupants were located.  The deceased driver of the vehicle was found to be 61 year old Ronald S. Konieczny of Owen, Wisconsin. 

  The preliminary investigation into the accident indicates the vehicle operated by Konieczny was westbound on County A when he crossed over into the opposite lane of traffic and into the south ditch.  The vehicle continued to travel in the south ditch and collided with a driveway embankment causing the vehicle to overturn coming to rest on it's roof, partially ejecting Konieczny from the vehicle.

  The cause of the accident is still under investigation.


Abbotsford Holiday Station Robbed Sunday Night

ABBOTSFORD, Wis. (WSAW) -- Three suspected thieves are on the loose after a robbery Sunday night in Abbotsford. All three are described as "armed and dangerous" by police.

  The three people, wearing masks and gloves, stole an unidentified amount of money from Holiday gas station at the intersection of E. Spruce Street and 4th Street, according to Colby-Abbotsford Police Chief Jason Bauer.

  The robbery was reported around 9:30 p.m. Sunday. Police at the scene early Monday morning say the robbers were inside the store for roughly three minutes. While there had been several customers throughout the evening, Bauer says no other customers were inside the store at the time of the robbery and no injuries were reported.

  The robbers, including at least one man and a woman, shot the glass out of the gas station's door, believing themselves to be locked in, according to Chief Bauer.

  All three fled the scene in a black, four-door vehicle, possibly with black-painted rims, heading east on Business 29 toward Wisconsin Highway 29. Anyone with information should contact Colby-Abbotsford Police at 715-223-2313 or 715-223-4944.
