CALEDONIA, Wis. - An out-of-state visitor to Caledonia became "slightly confused by the signage" in the construction zone on Monday, May 10. A Facebook post by the Caledonia Police Department explained what happened.
The driver was in the area of State Highway 38 and Newman Road – which was undergoing a resurfacing project at the time.
The driver apparently misconstrued the freshly poured concrete for a turn lane – and then navigated her vehicle into wet concrete. The vehicle became stuck.
A tow was called and the woman's vehicle was removed. The concrete truck was still on the scene and its driver used a hose to clean out the vehicle's wheels. The car was then taken directly to a car wash before anything would harden.
The driver was issued a citation for inattentive driving.
Workers were able to re-pour the patch shortly after the vehicle was removed.
