A truck driving near the Ripp Road and Highway 57 intersection in the town of Sevastopol closed the highway for about four hours late Tuesday afternoon. Door County Sheriff Deputy Pat McCarty says shortly before 3 p.m., a truck driving inadvertently clipped off multiple power lines that fell and caused a power pole to break. He says traffic was diverted around the area for five hours until WPS crews repaired the lines.
McCarty says the Door County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating the incident. The truck, which reportedly did not suffer any damage, was identified by a witness, and the information on the company was forwarded to WPS for possible reimbursement. Highway 57 was reopened to traffic at about 7:50 p.m. Tuesday night.
