BROWN COUNTY, WI — A Department of Public Works employee was hurt last Wednesday when a driver rear-ended a chipper truck in west Wrightstown, according to Kaukauna Community News.

The collision occurred at the intersection of Main Street and Nancy Street. It was first reported by the Wrightstown Police Department later that day, July 27, at 8:41 p.m.

Few details have been released, but authorities said the DPW was being used to chip brush around the village at the time. As the truck decreased speed to turn onto Nancy Street, it was hit from the back by another vehicle.

A DPW worker in the truck suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported by ambulance to a local hospital. Officials said the patient has since been released.

The causing driver, who was not reported injured, was issued a citation for inattentive driving.

Multiple agencies, including Village of Wrightstown – Public Works & Utilities, Wrightstown Fire Department, County Rescue, Wrightstown First Responders, and crews with TJ’z Towing responded to the site.
