A 28 year old Merrill woman received minor injuries following a crash on County Rd W north of County Rd P in the Town of Pine River. 

Lincoln County Deputies responded to 11 vehicles in the ditch as a result of Wednesday’s snow fall and slippery roads following clean up between Wednesday and Saturday.  Six property damage only crashes were also reported during this time frame.

The snowmobile trails opened in the northern part of Lincoln County last week.  As a result the Recreation Deputy was kept busy enforcing the trails and conducted several stops for various offenses to include failure to register snowmobiles, failure to display trail passes, operating off the trail, and failing to stop at stop signs along the trails.  

Two people reported striking deer last week.
