Rural Cassville woman dies from injuries sustained in Nov. 1 crash

GRANT COUNTY (WKOW) — A rural Cassville woman has died from injuries sustained in a crash Nov. 1 in Beetown Township.

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office said Friday it learned that Julie Kuenster, 60, has died.

Grant County deputies were called about 7:30 a.m. Nov. 1 to a report of a one-vehicle crash on Highway 81 near Rattlesnake Road located in the Township of Beetown.

Investigators say Kuenster was in her 2009 Chevy Aveo when it left the roadway onto the gravel shoulder.

Kuenster then over corrected the vehicle and slid across Hwy 81 where she hit a guardrail and rock embankment, according to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office.

Kuenster was wearing her seatbelt and airbags were deployed, but she was trapped in the vehicle and was extricated by the Bloomington Fire Department and Bloomington Jaws before being taken to the hospital.
