Vehicles trying to cross Highway 57 caused two different accidents in Door and Kewaunee Counties Monday evening. At around 4:45 p.m., an SUV traveling southbound on Highway 57 struck another vehicle towing a trailer near County Road X in Kewaunee County. Shortly after 7 p.m., a truck crossing Highway 57 at County Road H near Brussels was hit by an SUV traveling northbound. Door County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Pat McCarty says speed and distractions are often the common denominators in these types of crashes.
No injuries were reported in the Kewaunee County crash while the driver of the SUV in the Door County incident suffered a minor injury and was taken to Door County Medical Center for treatment.
