Green Bay Police hope crash video serves as lesson on distracted driving


GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Green Bay Police have taken to social media with a reminder about distracted driving and using caution at intersections.

The department is highlighting that message by posting a video on Facebook showing a crash at Gray St. and Dousman St. from Sept. 14.

At about 9:40 a.m., a lieutenant was traveling south on Gray St. when his dashboard camera captured a car run a red light and crash into another vehicle directly ahead of the squad.

The driver of the southbound vehicle had to be extricated from the car.

Both drivers were injured.

The driver of the black vehicle, a 41-year-old Green Bay woman, was issued a citation for running a red light. That comes with a $98.80 fine and the potential for four demerit points on her license.

“We encourage conversations with family members on the importance of driving the speed limit and using caution at intersections.  It is also extremely important for drivers to not be distracted by cellphones, passengers, or loud music inside their vehicles,” reads a statement from Green Bay Police.
