First Snow Storm Of The Year Causes Numerous Accidents, Including An Ambulance On Its Side
The first snow storm of the new year caused challenges in getting to and from work on Wednesday(1/5/2022). The all-day snow kept snow plow crews and Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Deputies busy the entire day.
More than 2 inches of the white, fluffy stuff created driving issues due to the blowing and drifting snow that lasted much of the day and into the night.
Dozens of accidents were reported in Fond du Lac County, beginning just after 6:15 a.m. Wednesday, when a 37-year female reported she had slid off the road near Campbell Dr. and Sunset Dr. in the Campbellsport area, and struck a tree. The woman reported pain in her back, but refused an ambulance.
Numerous other spin-outs, slide offs and collisions were reported well into Wednesday evening, including a Mt. Calvary/St. Cloud First Responder team who was on their way to a call involving a 51-year old male found unconscious on a bathroom floor. The ambulance was near the intersection of CTH TTT and Walnut when it ended up on its side.
Early reports were that the paramedics did not suffer any injuries but did need assistance exiting the ambulance.
KFIZ News did reach out the Wisconsin State Patrol, who is in charge of the investigation, but we have not received any updated information as of Thursday morning.
