Sign of the times? Driver makes rude entrance into Wauwatosa

Jan. 5, 2011

The sign welcoming drivers at Wauwatosa's eastern border was destroyed last week when a pickup truck crashed into it.

According to a Police Department report:

The 48-year-old man driving the truck looked down at his glove compartment. When he glanced up he saw a red light, but he couldn't stop in time and collided with a car.

The impact forced the car to the side and the truck jumped the curb and struck a concrete planter and the welcome sign at 9:46 a.m. Dec. 28.

The male passenger in the pickup was taken to Froedtert for overall body pain.

A 27-year-old Wauwatosa man was taken to St. Joseph Hospital. He was waiting in his sport-utility vehicle at the red light when it was sideswiped by the car.
