OSHKOSH – A man injured in a crash near the Country USA grounds is improving.

The 23-year-old man from Wautoma was one of three people hit by a pickup truck June 24 while they walked along the side of the road in the 3100 block of S. Washburn St. He was flown to Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah, then later to University Hospital in Madison. Police said Tuesday the man was still in Madison, but was upgraded to general care.

The other two people injured in the crash were also taken to local hospitals, where they were treated and released that night.

The driver of the pickup truck, a 17-year-old Oshkosh boy, was cooperative and did provide police with a blood sample. Investigators are still waiting for the results of a toxicology test.
