Drunk Driver Causes Crash on Highway 180
A drunk driver caused a significant road closure in Marinette County last weekend. The Town of Peshtigo Fire Department says around 4:15 Sunday afternoon an intoxicated motorist struck a vehicle pulling a boat trailer on State Highway 180, causing major damage to both vehicles and knocking the boat off the trailer. The driver at-fault attempted to flee into the woods, but was quickly apprehended. Traffic along 180 had to be rerouted for more than three hours after the crash so a heavy wrecker could remove the boat and damage to the road could be repaired.
