Brakes fail on pickup
A Mauston woman has been cited for ‘failure to keep vehicle under control’. Police said Sunday morning about 3am 19-year old Laura Lee was backing a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup from her driveway in the 500-block of Church Street in the City of Mauston. She attempted to brake, but the truck didn’t stop. She then panicked and hit the accelerator causing the pickup to jump the curb onto the lawn of the United Methodist Church. She continued backwards striking a mailbox in the front yard area of a residence in the 500-block of Milwaukee Street. Lee then drove the pickup forward stopping in the church parking lot. The truck sustained minor brake line damage. She was fined $126.60.
