Vernon County reports its first traffic fatality in 2013. Sheriff John Spears said, “Sunday morning about 8:55am a LaFarge man, 56-year old Leon Primmer, was traveling west on Pierce Hill Road in the Town of Viroqua when he lost control of his pickup. The truck crossed the center line, entered the ditch and flipped end-over-end before striking a tree. Primmer was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger, 14-year old Christina Primmer, was able to free herself from the pickup and notify a passing motorist of the accident. Christina Primmer was medically transported to Vernon Memorial Hospital for treatment. Both father and daughter were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.”
