Two injured in crash in Bristol

Two people were injured with one transported by helicopter to a hospital as the result of a crash in Bristol Sunday.

From a media release from Bristol Fire & Rescue:

At 1807 hours (6:07 p.m.) on Sunday, Aug. 21, 2016 the Bristol Fire & Rescue Department and Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to State Highway 50 and State Highway 45 in Bristol for the report of a Motor Vehicle crash with one person trapped. Bristol Fire & Rescue crews requested Flight For Life be placed on standby while en route to the scene due to the indicated mechanism of injury. Upon arrival on scene, one victim was found trapped in the vehicle with signs of significant injuries. The other patient reported minor injuries and was still in the vehicle. Town of Salem Fire/Rescue was requested to the scene with an ALS ambulance to transport one patient. The critical patient was assessed and treated by Bristol Fire & Rescue crews before being transferred to Flight For Life and flown to Froedtert Hospital, a Level I trauma center in Wauwatosa. The other patient was transported to St. Catherine’s Medical Center in Pleasant Prairie by the Salem Fire/Rescue.

The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department is expected to release more information on this incident when it is available.

    See Salem, that’s why we need Law enforcement on 50. Oh and by the way doesn’t Bristol have a dedicateds dedicated squad? And isn’t that the intersection where a ton of deputies sit all day? But ok Salem get rid of your public safety and let the jack a’s that ran Silver Lake in to the crap hole it is now run Salem to. But if you ask for protection or a deputy to do what our county tax pays them to do you get told to extend hours of a contract. SOUNDS LIKE A “PAY TO PLAY” to me it’s there job with or without contracts silver lake is less then 5000 people. Read the statutes. So Salem Tax payers if they are willing to charge for a village they have to cover any way JUST IMAGINE WHAT THEY WIll DO FOR YOUR 2d SET OF TAX DOLLARS nothing that’s what look at what they do in silver lake and want more money SALEM GET YOUR OWN POLICE Department. Or enjoy paying a lot for nothing extra HAY Silver Lake who patrols the lake?? Public safety right? And what were you told and quoted for w price to ask deputy’s to do it! WHY PAY a contract for extra patrol SILVER LAKE the LAKE is in the county RiGT? And we do pay country tact right? See that’s just one example of what you get when you ask deputy’s to do your policing
