A Hillsboro man was transferred to a La Crosse hospital as a result of injuries received in a one-vehicle rollover accident.  Vernon County Sheriff John Spears said, “Sunday evening about 7pm 19-year old Raymond Smith, was traveling south on Briskey Road in the Town of Hillsboro.  Smith failed to stop at the stop sign and crossed Highway 33.  The vehicle traveled down an embankment through a fence and overturned in a corn field.  The vehicle came to rest on its top and both, Smith and a passenger, 19-year old Morgan Bejster also of Hillsboro, were able to get out of the vehicle.  Smith was initially transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hillsboro and later transferred to Gundersen Medical Center in LaCrosse with unknown injuries.  Bejster was also transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital where she was treated and released.”
