OZAUKEE COUNTY — The Ozaukee County officials confirmed that an 82-year-old woman died after being struck by a car along the side of the road on Saturday, May 16.
In a news release, the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Office said they were called to the scene near County Road Y and St. Augustin Road in Saukville around 3:30 p.m.
Authorities say the truck, headed southbound, drifted over the centerline of the road into the northbound lane and eventually over the northbound ditch line, fatally striking the woman.
The truck then struck and broke a power pole. The driver — a 34-year-old West Bend man — was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and subsequently arrested for operating while intoxicated, causing death.
