On March 4, at 5:42 p.m., the Crawford County Communications Center received a 911 call about an 11-year-old boy who had been kicked in the head by a horse at 41278 Hilltop Lane in the township of Scott. 

An investigation was conducted and determined the horse was tied up inside a barn on the property. The boy was riding a stand up scooter behind the horse when it became spooked. The horse backed up and kicked, striking the boy in the head above his right eye. The blunt force initially knocked the boy unconscious but he eventually regained consciousness while on scene. 

The boy was transported by Med Flight to UW–Madison. The extent of his injuries are unknown.

Assisting on scene were the Boscobel Fire Department, Boscobel Rescue Squad, Scott Township First Responders and UW Med Flight.
