Woman Injured in Fayette County Trench Collapse

A collapsed trench injured a woman in Fayette County on Friday afternoon.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says they received a 911 call of a woman trapped in a trench from a collapsed dirt wall at 10408 Ivy Road north of Fayette shortly before 3 pm.

Fire and ambulance crews worked for over 40 minutes to free 25-year old Bridgett Fox of Randalia. Authorities say she was airlifted to LaCrosse, with her injuries unknown.

Several local equipment companies assisted emergency crews at the scene, helping to move dirt and rescue Fox from the trench.
