Orange barrels, a crushed row boat and some muddy tire tracks leading into Big Cedar Lake mark what’s left of a scary accident late Friday night on Highway 144.
Washington County Sheriff’s Sergeant Keith Uhan said a vehicle that was eastbound on County Highway K zipped through the intersection and went off the road and landed about 50-feet off the shore of Big Cedar Lake. Uhan said the water was about 2-feet deep.
Rescue crews got to the scene of the accident on the west side of the lake around 11:55 p.m. The driver suffered minor injuries. He was identified as a 41-year-old West Bend man.
Uhan said alcohol was not a factor in the accident. The driver will be cited, possibly for inattentive driving.
