MOUNT PLEASANT, WI – A male passenger was rendered unconscious Thursday afternoon when a Lexus crashed into the car he was driving.

Mount Pleasant police and the South Shore Fire Department responded to a car crash with injuries near Washington Avenue and Meadowlane Avenue around 2:30 p.m. The unconscious passenger of a 2003 Toyota Camry was recovered from the backseat and transported to the Ascension-All Saints emergency room with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Another female passenger in the Camry was also transported with minor injuries.
