An Ellsworth man was hospitalized Tuesday after a two-vehicle crash just west of Plum City.

Jerome Huppert, 50, was transported to River Falls Area Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He was later transferred to Regions Hospital in St. Paul. On Wednesday morning a hospital spokeswoman reported he was in fair condition.

Reports indicate Huppert's westbound vehicle crossed the Highway 10 centerline and struck an eastbound vehicle driven by Norman Holmstadt, 61, of Plum City, according to the Pierce County Sheriff's Department.

Holmstadt treated on the scene for possible minor injuries.

Deputies said alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
