Nov. 14, 2016 – Slinger, WI – On Sunday, Nov. 13 at 5:05 p.m. the Washington County Sheriff received a cell 911 call from a concerned motorist about a northbound black pick-up truck on I41 near STH 60 that was “all over the road.”
It was reported the truck was traveling from shoulder to shoulder and rumble strip to rumble strip; vehicles were lining up behind the suspect driver because they were afraid to pass due to the erratic driving. As the complainant was following the suspect driver also struck a construction barrel near County Trunk D.
A deputy attempted to stop the vehicle on I41 south of STH 28 but the vehicle failed to stop. The driver exited the Interstate at STH 28 and then turned around and proceeded back south on I41. The vehicle continued southbound on I41 at speeds ranging from 100 mph to as slow as 35 mph striking another construction barrel as well sideswiping a temporary concrete wall twice in the construction zone.
The vehicle continued at highway speeds until exiting at STH 67 in Lomira and proceeded into a residential area.
Both the Dodge County Sheriff as well as the Lomira Police Department assisted. The suspect remains in custody of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
