DUBUQUE, Iowa (KCRG) - A Dubuque high school golfer is recovering after a crash left him hospitalized.
Will Coohey was leaving Thunder Hills golf course after helping Wahlert’s golf team qualify for state.
In a post on the nonprofit CaringBridge’s website, staff said the crash happened at about 4:30 p.m. on Monday when the front tire of Will’s truck caught the gravel on the shoulder, which caused the truck to hit a bridge and roll down the embankment.
