Two accidents after brake failure on vehicle
space
A 23-year-old area man was involved in not one, but two accidents Wednesday afternoon, when the brakes failed on his vehicle.

According to police reports, several 911 calls were received at 1:17 p.m. for a vehicle that ran into the Wagner Shell building in Antigo. The man was cited for operating while suspended and no insurance.

Following the Wagner Shell incident, the man left eastbound on Forrest Avenue to an auto repair shop to get his brakes fixed. He turned into the shop’s driveway and tried parking his pickup truck, but due to no brakes, drove over a wood retaining wall and struck another vehicle.

In an unrelated accident, two vehicles collided on County Road S near Marl Road at 6:08 p.m. Wednesday. Listed drivers were Ricky L. Wilson, 55, Aniwa, and Stefani R. Vazques, 20, Antigo.

Deer were also struck by motor vehicles both Wednesday morning and early today.

The Wednesday collision involved a vehicle operated by Richard J. Baum, 69. Baum’s vehicle suffered windshield and mirror damage after the crash near Highway 45 and County Road B, south of Summit Lake.

This morning, a vehicle operated by Nikila M. Cooper, 45, Antigo, hit a deer on County Road H near Beattie Road and went into the ditch.

No injuries were reported in the mishaps.
