On Thursday, just before 5 in the morning the Barron County Sheriff’s Department received a call of a two-vehicle crash west of Poskin near CTH F and Hwy. 8, in the Town of Clinton. The caller reported one of the vehicles was on fire.
Initial investigation shows the driver of a van traveling eastbound on Hwy 8 crossed the center-line and into the path of a westbound semi-tractor trailer that was hauling US Postal Service mail. 51-year old Robin Gregg from Niagra was the driver of the semi-tractor trailer and was transported to Mayo Hospital in Barron with non-life-threatening injuries.
44-year old Brian Morris from Turtle Lake was the driver of the van and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
