TOWN of STERLING, Wis. - A Town of Sterling plow driver suffered minor injuries after his truck went into a ditch on Monday evening, according to the Vernon County Sheriff's Office.
Michael Skildum, 56, of rural Viroqua, was operating a snow plow for the Town of Sterling on Oliver Road, north of Bad Axe Road when the plow tripped forward, which is common while snow plowing, authorities said. Skildum was not able to retract or lift the plow on the ice-covered road and the truck veered left and came to a rest in the ditch on the opposite side of the road.
The Vernon County Sheriff's Office says Skildum suffered minor injuries and went to a local hospital on his own where he was treated and released.
