A Northeast Iowa woman has been seriously hurt in a weekend accident in Allamakee County.


19 year old Erin Rud of rural New Albin apparently fell out of a pickup that was northbound on Morgan Bridge Road, southwest of New Albin. The accident happened just before 4am Sunday (April 2).

Rud had to be taken by Aircare ambulance to a LaCrosse, Wisconsin hospital; a condition report was not released.

The vehicle was being driven by 20 year old Travis Colsch, also of rural New Albin. Following an investigation, Colsch was charged with OWI (Operating While Intoxicated). He was booked then later released from the Allamakee County jail in Waukon.

The Allamakee County Sheriff continues to look into the accident.
