Paramedic's vehicle struck during incident call

A minor two-vehicle accident Tuesday night south of Baileys Harbor on Highway 57 led to a second incident where an off-duty paramedic crew’s vehicle on the scene was struck from behind. Door County Sheriff Patrol Lt. Brad Shortreed says no one was injured in either incident and that the paramedics were checking on any injuries from the first accident. The first accident occurred around 6:20 pm when a vehicle clipped the side of a truck and trailer that was parked on the roadside. According to the police report, shortly after 6:30 pm, the unoccupied vehicle driven by the paramedics, which was legally parked with flashers on, was struck from behind by a southbound van driven by a 45-year-old woman from Milwaukee. She was cited for failure to have control of a motor vehicle. Both vehicles in the second crash required towing, with no medical attention being needed for those involved in either accident.
