An impending storm this weekend and a surge in cars going into ditches has area law enforcement reminding motorists to drive safer on roadways. A Sturgeon Bay woman was transported to the hospital Wednesday evening after her car ended up in a ditch near Highway 42/57 and Tacoma Beach Road. No known cause of the crash was noted on the Sturgeon Bay Police accident report, but snow and ice were noted as highway factors. Door County Sheriff Steve Delarwelle says if you need to be on the road, drive with extra caution.
Delarwelle is urging drivers to stay home if they do not have to be out when Winter Storm Bailey hits Friday afternoon so snowplow drivers can concentrate on the roads.
