A Mauston man was cited as a result of a two-vehicle accident in the City of Mauston Monday morning.  Police said at 8am 33-year old Robert Blanchette was traveling east on Tremont Street when he ran the stop sign at Elm Street.  The 1998 Dodge Caravan van struck a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica traveling north on Elm Street being operated by a Lyndon Station woman, 34-year old Mindy Flint.  The impact caused the van to roll onto its side.  Both drivers received minor injuries.  Blanchette was medically transported.  He was cited for ‘failure to stop at stop sign’ and fined $88.80.  Blanchette told the officer he did not see the stop sign and maybe his window was frosted too much.
