Cows are Missing in Washington County after Drunk Driving Accident

Around 2:26 AM on Monday, a Kewaskum man allegedly struck a mailbox then a pasture fence and ended up in a bean field, and in the process 10 cow escaped. 

According to Washington County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to the area of Cty Tk WW north of Hwy 33 for a report of a possible personal injury accident.

The responding deputies located the accident scene and determined a Dodge pick-up was northbound on Cty Tk WW when the driver went into the east shoulder and struck a mailbox. The operator then over-corrected and crossed the road and went into the west shoulder.

The vehicle then continued off roadway and diagonally went through a pasture fence, breaking through it in two different locations, and continued through another ditch and finally came to rest in a bean field about 200 feet off the roadway.

About 10 cows escaped through the broken fence, and as of 10:00 AM on Monday there were four cows still not accounted for.

The vehicle sustained severe damage including airbag deployment.

The driver left the scene prior to law enforcement’s arrival but was later located on Cty Hy H and identified as a 24-year-old Village of Kewaskum man. He had minor injuries and was arrested for OWI and a probable probation violation as he was on a restriction of absolute sobriety.
