Dump truck vs. pickup truck accident in Germantown, two taken to hospital

GERMANTOWN -- Authorities in Germantown responded to a dump truck vs. pickup truck accident at Freistadt Road and County Aire Drive. The accident occurred on Wednesday, August 19th.

Germantown police say the dump truck, driven by a 53-year-old Saukville man, was traveling eastbound when it crossed the center line and struck the pickup truck. The dump truck ended up going off the roadway and cut a power pole in half before going into a cornfield.

The 53-year-old dump truck driver was found without a pulse and not breathing. Authorities performed CPR on the driver and transported him to Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls. The condition of the dump truck driver is unclear at this time.

Chief Weiss says the driver of the pickup truck, a 59-year-old man from Beaver Dam, was trapped inside --the fire department had to use its extrication tools to get him out of the truck. That man was also taken to Community Memorial Hospital with very minor injuries.

Freisadt Road had to be closed off in the area of the accident so crews could remove debris from the roadway.
