Letter: Thankfully, first responders are there

To the editor:

Many thanks to the Red Wing Fire Department, Pierce County Sheriff's Department and my many concerned neighbors and fellow travelers on Wisconsin Highway 35 on Halloween who stopped to render aid after a nearly very serious accident.

I was only shaken up and the occupants of the other car suffered a broken rib. I'm not sure about their car, but my pickup is likely totaled.

What happened? While traveling south on 35 along the Red Wing Regional Airport, a deer popped up in front of a vehicle traveling north. Consequently the vehicle and the deer crossed into my lane, I struck the car, it and the deer ended up in the ditch to my right.

Thanks for all who cared, stopped and the professionals who responded so quickly.
