LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - A pedestrian is hospitalized after being struck by a car Monday morning.
It happened just before 8 a.m. near the intersection of 10th and Market Streets.
The cause of the crash is still being investigated.
The car's windows were frosted over, which police say could have contributed to the crash.
Police ask that people make sure their cars are ready to drive before putting them on the road.
"Preplan," said Sgt. Kirk Flatten of the La Crosse Police Department. "Know that the windows are gonna be frosted over and it's gonna take a little while for (a) vehicle to warm up and they get to defrost on and clear all that (frost) off."
The injured pedestrian was taken to a local hospital for treatment and is in stable condition.
The Onalaska Police Department said driving with an obstructed view – this includes frosted windows – results in a fine of $89.
