State Trooper Hurt in Wreck

A state trooper from the Iron River Post is hurt in a car accident.

It happened shortly before 9 Central time this morning on West Ice lake Road in Iron River.

A 68–year–old Caspian man was trying to turn onto another street when he hit a State Police vehicle.

A 27–year–old male trooper was driving that State Police vehicle.

He was taken to Northstar Health System for treatment.

But there’s no word tonight from either the Iron River City Police or the Iron County Sheriff’s Department on how he’s doing.

The Caspian man sought his own treatment for minor injuries.
