Citations issued in Bayview Bridge crash

A Baileys Harbor resident was issued citations after causing a three-car accident on Tuesday afternoon, temporarily closing the Bayview Bridge. 


According to the accident report released on Friday, Asa Kastner was traveling north on Highway 42/57 at approximately 4:45 p.m. when his car struck the guardrail on the Bayview Bridge, causing him to lose control. His vehicle crossed over to the southbound lane where he hit two other cars before settling back into the northbound lane. He was transported to Door County Medical Center with suspected serious injuries. Two Sturgeon Bay residents in another vehicle were listed with possible injuries but did not need to be transported. All three cars had to be towed from the scene of the crash, which closed the Bayview Bridge for approximately one hour.


Captain Dan Brinkman says the department issued citations for Failure to Keep Vehicle Under Control and Operating Vehicle Left of Center.
