This is a press release from the Lodi Police Department
On 9/21/2021 at 3:24PM, The Lodi Police Department responded to a vehicle vs pedestrian crash. The crash occurred at the intersection of Lodi St/STH 60 and Water St. An 11-year-old juvenile was injured and transported by ambulance to UW Hospital in Madison, WI.
The 11-year-old male was running on the sidewalk approaching the intersection as a 2021 Toyota Corolla driven by Dorothy Plahmer of Pewaukee, was negotiating the corner/turn. The juvenile ran into the street and was struck.
The juvenile had minor injuries from the crash. A separate vehicle travelling in the opposite direction was motioning some other juveniles across the street when the crash occurred.
The Lodi Police Department reminds drivers that youth are attending school and sidewalks are now more heavily traveled. We ask drivers to slow down and use caution at intersections, and refrain from directing traffic from their vehicles.
