Truck knocked out of gear strikes 2 kids


TOWN OF EXCELSIOR (WKOW) -- Shortly before 4:30 Monday afternoon, the Sauk County Sheriff's Department was called to a report of two children being struck by a vehicle.

The freak accident happened on private property.  The two children were entering the pickup truck when the vehicle began to roll back down a steep driveway after being "knocked out" of gear.  Both children were thrown from the truck, which then struck and injured them.

The kids are from Rock Springs.  One of the children was taken to Reedsburg Area Medical Center and the other transported to University Children's Hospital in Madison for non life threatening injuries via Med Flight.

Assisting Sauk County Sheriff's Department were Reedsburg Ambulance and Reedsburg Fire Department.

This case has been ruled accidental and the investigation is closed.
