La Crosse Dispatch Center Denies Request for Accident Audio
You won't be able to hear the radio chatter before the fatal accident near Midway this past week-end. Not for awhile, anyway. The La Crosse county dispatch center has denied our newsroom's request for the audio of the conversations between dispatch and deputy Trisha Stratman prior to and after the accident that left 16 year-old Brandon Jennings dead. Recording of that audio is part of an ongoing investigation into the accident. Stratman was responding to a call at a bar on Mill Street in Holmen when she collided with Jennings at the intersection of highways 35 and OT.
