— Two 17-year-old girls were seriously injured and one was arrested after their vehicle struck a tree and utility pole in the 400 block of South Main Street in Edgerton early Saturday morning.

A car driven by Kassandra E. Valley, 17, of 3318 Stellar Drive, Janesville, failed to negotiate a curve, crossed the centerline, crashed into a utility pole and struck a tree at 12:56 a.m. Saturday, according to a report from the Edgerton Police Department.


Valley and her passenger, Meghan M. Brieske, 17, of 3702 Birdsong Lane, Janesville, were transported to University Hospital. Valley was treated and discharged. The hospital declined to release Brieske’s condition because she’s a minor.


Valley was arrested on a charge of causing injury by drunken driving, according to the accident report.


The utility pole had to be replaced.
