Man arrested for allegedly hitting wife with truck on purpose


Ladysmith (WQOW) - A woman is taken to the hospital after her husband allegedly hit her with his truck on purpose.

Brent Olsen was arrested Thursday night for second-degree reckless injury. Deputies were called to a rural Ladysmith home. The Rusk County sheriff says Olsen and his wife were involved in an argument.

He says the woman went outside and Olsen got into his pickup truck and intentionally backed into her. She was pinned between the truck and snowmobile. 

Olsen called 911 and his wife was taken to the hospital with leg injuries. Her condition is not available.
