On May 12, at 8:34 p.m., the Crawford County Communications Center received a report of a two-vehicle traffic crash on Highway 18 just east of Upper Bridgeport Road in the township of Bridgeport.

Daniel R. Koeller, 24, Cuba City, was operating a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado and was stopped at a red light in the westbound lane of Highway 18. Troy D. Underhill, 39, Bagley, was westbound on Highway 18 in a 2011 Chevrolet Traverse. Underhill swerved to the right of Koeller’s vehicle to avoid a rear-end collision. Underhill’s vehicle struck a traffic sign, construction barrel, and a portable traffic light before coming to rest. Underhill claimed no injuries from the crash but was arrested for operating while under the influence, third offense. Underhill’s two other passengers fled the scene before law enforcement arrived.

Koeller’s vehicle was not hit in the crash.

Assisting the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department at the scene were the Prairie du Chien Police Department, the Bridgeport Fire Department, the Bridgeport First Responders, and Milo’s Towing of Prairie du Chien.
