One vehicle accident near Liberty Pole closes State Highway for short time

VIROQUA, Wis. – The Vernon County Sheriff’s Office reports that on August 28th, at 9:12 p.m. the 911 Dispatch Center received a report of a single vehicle rollover accident on State Highway 27, approximately a half a mile North of Tainter Hollow Road.

The driver, Franklin Nold, 54, of Liberty MO, was traveling North on Highway 27 when he came upon an S-curve in the road. Nold did not see any signs that he needed to slow down and approached too quickly. As the S-curve was downhill, Nold gained too much speed and upon exiting the S-curve went onto the shoulder of the road where the vehicle tipped onto its side.

No injuries were reported at the scene. Highway 27 was closed while the vehicle was removed. Assisting the Vernon County sheriff’s Office were the Viroqua Fire Department and Rush Hour Towing.
