Two men were sent to the hospital following a one vehicle accident in the Town of Greenwood, south of Hillsboro on Saturday night. Vernon County Sheriff John Spears reports that 24-year-old Michael Antill of Hillsboro was driving south on Highway 80, just north of Beaver Creek Drive, when he lost control and went off the road. A passenger, 30-year-old Michael Hoeppner of Sullivan, was ejected as the vehicle rolled multiple times. Both Antill and Hoeppner were transported to St. Joseph Hospital in Hillsboro. Antill was treated and released, but Hoeppner was transported  to Gundersen Lutheran and  is being treated  for non-life threatening injuries. Antill was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash, while it appears Hoeppner was not.  Spears says alcohol was a factor in the crash, which is still under investigation.
