Jan. 24, 2017 – Town of Kewaskum, WI – The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a hit-and-run accident that occurred in the 4200 block of Badger Road in the Town of Kewaskum on Monday evening at 10 p.m.
The suspect vehicle was westbound on Badger Road when, according to a witness, the operator rapidly accelerated away from a stop sign and lost control of the vehicle, skidded off the roadway and struck a power pole. As you can see from the skid marks, it was fortunate there was not on oncoming vehicle.
The operator fled the scene west on Badger Road. It is not known if the driver or any occupants were hurt.
What we do know is the operator, in his/her rush, forgot to clean up the scene before fleeing. A side mirror, a Ford tube style running board and glass fragments were all left at the scene.
If you happen to see a vehicle with damage consistent to this, or know of someone that coincidentally has stopped driving their Ford truck (or SUV) vehicle to keep it out of the public’s view, we have one particular deputy that would like to speak with that person about their driving habits.
