A Forest Junction man may be charged with triggering an Appleton pedestrian accident Saturday.
According to officials with the Calumet County Sheriff's Department, 26 year-old JEremy Brewer may be cited for making "a sudden pedestrian movement into traffic" in connection with a car accident that injured another pedestrian on U.S. 10 near State 57, shortly after 8:30 p.m. Saturday. Sheriff's Sergeant Bill Tyson told reporters Sunday that witnesses said Brewer ran into the path of a westbound van shortly before the crash.
Witnesses say the driver of the van, a 57 year-old Appleton man, was forced to brake hard and swerve to avoid striking Brewer. The van missed Brewer, but struck another pedestrian, 22 year-old James DeRoo, of Forest Junction, who was standing on the highway shoulder waiting to cross.
DeRoo was transported to Theda Clark Medical Center after the crash, for treatment of a leg injury. He was released Sunday morning.
