VERNON COUNTY, WI (Ben Caxton) — One truck ran another off the road and fled the scene Monday afternoon according to the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office. Reports say the result was a single-vehicle rollover around 3:30 PM in the town of Webster. 25-year-old Joel Champion of rural Viroqua was driving a full-size pickup truck eastbound on State Highway 82 near Nemec Hill Road, west of La Farge. While negotiating a curve to the left he reported seeing an oncoming, westbound vehicle approaching in his lane of travel and he steered right. Champion’s truck went off the roadway, struck a guardrail, overturned, struck several Evergreen trees, and came to rest in the lawn of a private residence. Champion was wearing a seatbelt, sustained minor injuries, and refused transport. The oncoming vehicle is described as a white colored pickup truck that did not stop.
