Tyler P. Amacher, 31, of Prairie Du Sac, was driving west Highway 12 when he rear-ended a vehicle driven Jeremy E. Moen, 30, of Sauk City. Prior to the crash, a caller had reported that Amacher was speeding and driving recklessly, Schaffer said.

Moen was transported to a local hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening, Schaffer said.

Amacher was tentatively charged with reckless driving causing injury, and cited for following too close, unreasonable and imprudent speed, and unsafe lane deviation, Schaffer said.
