Driver taken to hospital after crashing into tree

By Bonnie Shelton

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Despite the warm up, winter weather is still wreaking havoc on area drivers.

Sunday afternoon, a vehicle slid off the road on East Jefferson near 69th Avenue in Wausau. Authorities say the driver hit ice and lost control, spinning before entering the ditch and hitting a tree.

Emergency crews had to pry open the driver's side door to remove the only occupant.

She was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
