Namekagon Transit Bus Found in the Ditch

Thursday, December 14, 2017 | SawyerWire |

A Namekagon Transit bus was reported in the ditch on Water Tower Lane on the LCO Reservation yesterday afternoon, Dec. 13. The driver wasn’t near the vehicle when found, but he was reported to be okay.

Road conditions at the time were snow covered and slippery after a fresh five inches of snow fell during the early morning hours.

Phone calls to Namekagon Transit this morning went unanswered to confirm the cause or whether any passengers were on board.

LCO Police arrived on scene, called for a heavy duty tow truck and closed the road while the bus was being pulled out and removed.

It was unclear if any passengers were on the bus when it went into the ditch.
