NEW GLARUS — The Green County Sheriff's Office is seeking witnesses or anyone else with information on a one-vehicle crash in New Glarus that occurred early Sunday, Aug. 25.

Deputies determined the southbound vehicle crossed the centerline and went off the road into the east ditch, then hit a culvert and overturned. It sustained severe damage, with airbag deployment, and was towed.

One of the vehicle occupants was still on scene when deputies arrived. Another was located a short time later, according to Chief Deputy Tom Moczynski.

The occupants are identified as David Saldivar, 19, and Austin T. Lawson, 22, both of Freeport. They reported wearing seatbelts and sustaining minor injuries. Saldivar declined medical treatment. Lawson was transported to a hospital for treatment.
