One reported with life-threatening injuries

Around 1:00 p.m., on Tuesday, November 22, 2016, Ironwood Public Safety Department responded to a report of a head-on collision at U.S. 2 and Luxmore Streets. Officers arrived, as EMS was on scene rendering aid to one male victim.

The driver of the first vehicle was transported to Aspirus Grand View Hospital and later airlifted to Wausau with, what appeared to be, life threatening injuries. His official condition is not known at this time.
