WHITEHALL, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Thursday's rain turns to ice that causes two accidents in Trempealeau County.

A car driven by 47-year-old John Spence of Taylor went out of control on the icy road and rolled into a ditch.  A 10-year-old girl in the car with Spence was taken to Tri-County Memorial Hospital in Whitehall with non-life threatening injuries.
