Sturgeon Bay, WI (June 10, 2023) – Three people sustained injuries in a serious truck accident that took place at an intersection in Sturgeon Bay on Wednesday morning, June 7.
According to Door County officials, the accident happened before 10 a.m. at the intersection of Highway 57 and Clarks Lake Road. A delivery truck and a passenger vehicle were traveling in the area when they entered the intersection and collided with each other. One of the vehicles was allegedly traveling east at the time, while the other was traveling south. The delivery truck overturned as a result of the accident.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. A total of three people were injured as a result of the accident. The parties were hospitalized with serious injuries but are all expected to recover.
Due to the severity of the accident, a portion of the roadway was blocked after the collision. This led to slow traffic and delays in the area for some time.
No further details have been released, but Door County deputies continue their investigation into the circumstances of the accident.
We want to offer our warmest thoughts and sympathies to those injured in this accident with hopes of a full recovery.
Truck Accidents in Wisconsin
Though accidents do not happen as often as other collisions on our roads in Wisconsin, they still lead to serious damages and take lives every year. Because large trucks can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, they are capable of causing catastrophic harm in the event of an accident. In 2018, it was reported that 73 fatal collisions that occurred in Wisconsin happened as a result of large trucks. On top of this, handfuls of victims are hurt weekly due to these accidents. If you have been hurt in a truck accident that was caused by another party’s negligence, it is crucial that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
The aftermath of a truck accident can be a challenging thing to face. Truck accident claims are highly complex in comparison to many other types of injury claims.
