New Richmond man injured when car overturns

A New Richmond man was transported by ambulance to River Falls Area Hospital late Tuesday afternoon after his car left Pierce County Road G, west of El Paso, and overturned.

Brandon Campeau, 20, was transported by the Ellsworth Area Ambulance Service following the 5:39 p.m. crash.

Pierce County sheriff's deputy Jean Spletstoser said Campeau was westbound on County G when his vehicle caught the edge of the road at the beginning of a sharp southbound curve. Campeau over-corrected, sending the vehicle sideways before it entered the west ditch and overturned.

The Sheriff's Department was assisted by Ellsworth Area Fire, Ambulance and Paramedics.
