UPDATED: One-car rollover stops traffic
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

Emergency responders sped to an accident scene just after 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 29, on County Road F in the town of Clifton, about 1/10th of a mile south of 820th Avenue. At the bottom of a steep hill and curvy part of that road, a green, four-door, Chevrolet Cavalier drive by Daniel Olivarez, Jr., 50, of Hastings, Minn., left the pavement, rolled or flipped and landed on its roof.

Olivarez was the driver and only occupant in the vehicle. A River Falls Ambulance transported him to River Falls Area Hospital with undetermined injuries.

A press release from the Pierce County Sheriff's Department says the cause of the crash is unknown and remains under investigation. Olivarez's car was southbound on County Rd. F when it "entered the west ditch and overturned."

Officials closed both lanes of County Road F for about 30 minutes. Reporting to and helping at the scene were the River Falls Fire Department and Ambulance Service, Pierce County Sheriff's Department and an area DNR warden.
