Highway 51 drivers see flying debris after traffic incident Monday

TOMAHAWK, WI (WTAQ) - The Highway 51 freeway near Tomahawk looked like a NASCAR track Monday afternoon, as flying debris caused traffic to slow down while the road was cleared.

According to Lincoln County sheriff’s deputies, the hood from a 16-year-old car broke off and flew backwards – and it punctured a tire on a 20 foot camper-trailer.

The sheriff’s department did not mention any injuries in a statement about the mishap. The driver of the camper, from Kaukauna, swerved to avoid hitting the loose car hood, but that failed.

The car driver, from Schofield, was ticketed for not having vehicle insurance.

Traffic was slowed down for almost two hours.
