TOWN OF NEKIMI, WI (WTAQ) – Three people were hurt after they were hit by a pickup truck near the Country USA grounds Tuesday.

A 17-year-old Oshkosh boy was driving the pickup truck south on Washburn Ave. just after 10 p.m. when he hit three people walking along the road, the State Patrol says.

A 23-year-old man was airlifted to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The other two, a 20-year-old woman, and a 22-year-old man, were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the pickup truck was not hurt.

Police said wet conditions on the festival grounds may have played a role.

The crash is still under investigation.
