A Reedsburg man lost his life Monday afternoon in the Town of Excelsior. Around 3:00 the Sauk County Dispatch Center received reports of a motor vehicle crash on STH 23 at Shady Lane Road. It was reported that a pick-up truck versus semi-tractor trailer resulted in serious injuries to the pick-up truck driver, who has been identified as Ronald Sersland, 63 of Reedsburg.

Med- Flight was requested to respond directly to the scene.

The initial investigation revealed that Ronald Sersland was traveling southbound on 23 when he crossed the centerline and struck the semi-tractor trailer. Ronald Sersland, 63 of Reedsburg, died at the scene. The lone semi driver was transported to the Reedsburg Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
