Blue River, WI – April 17, 2014 – Late last night a man from Boscobel was driving south on County T just past the Wisconsin River Bridge in his 2013 Ford F-150 pickup truck when he swerved to miss two dogs that ran across the roadway.
His vehicle went over an embankment and into the backwaters of the Wisconsin River. The river is near flood-stage causing the truck to be completely submerged with only part of its roof top showing . The driver got out safely, but no details have yet been released on how he escaped.
The Grant County Sheriff's Department's Search & Rescue Dive Team donned scuba gear and entered the cold water to fasten tow chains on the vehicle. See MWNews.net for updates.
