Police were advised that the Saukville Department of Public Works was able to find the dump truck and speak with the driver.
Police then contacted the company, based in Manitowoc, and then spoke with the driver, a 51-year-old Mishicot man. He stated that whoever loaded the truck must not have secured the load, and he didn’t know that until it was too late.
