Douglas County Deputies responded to Badger Mountain Road approximately three miles north of Fancher Hts. to investigate an injury accident. Fire and EMS were also dispatched.
An investigation revealed that the driver of a N/B 2008 Nissan pickup crossed the center line and hit a S/B 1992 Ford pickup head on. Both drivers were injured and transported to Confluence Hospital. Their condition is unknown. Traffic was blocked for about an hour until a county snow plow arrived and cleared a shoulder so vehicles could pass.
Douglas County has about 1,600 miles of county roads and 6 state highways. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind everyone to use care and stay alert for danger as they travel our roadways.
