McDonald's cup of water thrown by teens causes semi-truck pileup on I-43 | News
You could call it water over the bridge, but the Ozaukee County Sheriff's Department is calling it criminal. They are looking for three or four teenagers who caused a semi-truck pileup on the interstate near Belgium. Police say it all started with a simple McDonald's cup of water.
It was a few teens, seemingly joking around, creating havoc. The teens stood on top of the overpass in Belgium, WI. Perhaps unaware of the damage their actions would cause.
One cup hit the windshield of a semi, with such force that it shattered the glass and pieces of the cup were embedded inside. That truck lost control and a chain reaction accident followed. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the crashes.
Ozaukee County Sheriff Captain David Guss said, " I don't think they ever thought that something so dramatic would happen as a result of this, but it is still a very serious situation and we are looking for them to come forward."
The Sheriff's Department is looking for the teens who were in a red or brown pick up truck. The truck has a decal on the rear driver's window of an "M" from the Monster drink logo.
If you have any information, please call the Ozaukee County Sheriff's office at (262)377-7172.
