On Sunday, November 30, 2014, a car crashed into a semitrailer truck in Shawano County, resulting in injuries to the car driver. According to the Shawano County Sheriff’s Office, the accident happened when the car failed to stop at the intersection of Highway 29 and Highway MMM and then collided into the passenger side of the truck. The driver of the car, who reportedly was not wearing a seat belt, was taken to the Shawano Medical Center for treatment of his injuries. The driver of the semitrailer was not injured. The accident did cause one of the truck’s fuel tanks to open, spilling about 30 to 40 gallons of fuel in Highway 29. As a result, one lane of the highway was closed for about two hours during clean-up of the spill.
