Somo was the site of a two-vehicle crash that occurred around 3:50 p.m. on Wednesday, leaving three people injured.
Lincoln County police sited the incident on Highway 8 at Garvin's Place. Tomahawk firefighters assisted two injured people from one of the crashed cars, while the third passenger in that vehicle was able to exit on their own power. That vehicle ran off the road following the crash, stopping only after crashing into a tree and then a telephone pole.
The three people in the car that left the road following the crash were all injured, although the two passengers suffered only minor injuries. The driver air-lifted via helicopter to Aspirus Wausau Hospital, where that individual underwent treatment for injuries described as non-life threatening. The driver of the other vehicle in the crash did not require assistance from authorities and was not injured from the collision.
The crash itself is under investigation. Police are still uncertain as to what caused the wreck to happen, if anyone was truly at fault, or if there was a defect with the road. Police have determined that alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
