One vehicle came to rest in the west bound passing lane, and the other came to rest on the east bound side of the median. One driver related that she was wearing her seat belt, and noted to crews that she did not need an ambulance. One driver was assessed, treated, and transported to Prairie Lakes Hospital for injuries; this individual was not wearing their seatbelt. Engine crews were able to clean up the debris and fluids from the wreckage in about 20 minutes. Also responding to this accident was the Watertown Police Department and Performance Towing.
