The Brown County Sheriff’s Office has a message for drivers after a close call almost crushed a deputy and tow truck driver last week. The accident happened around 10:30 p.m. Friday night as that band of snow was wrapping up in northeast Wisconsin. A Brown County Deputy and tow truck driver were responding to a vehicle in the ditch on I-41, just north of County S in the Town of Lawrence. While they were discussing how to tow the vehicle, a 19-year-old Appleton area driver hit the back of the wrecker, pushing it forward and running over the deputy and tow truck driver. The teen’s vehicle also hit the squad car.
