FLORENCE, Wis. - Three people were injured following a one-vehicle accident Wednesday in Florence.

The crash occurred at about 5 p.m. on U.S. 2 near the Lakeside Bed & Breakfast.

Florence County Sheriff Jeff Rickaby reported that a vehicle was eastbound on U.S. 2 when it failed to negotiate a 90 degree curve in the road. The vehicle veered off unto the lawn of the Lakeside Bed & Breakfast and came to a stop on top of a decorative rock formation, he added.
