Trooper involved in minor mishap

A Wisconsin State Trooper was involved in a minor traffic mishap July 25 in the town of Hudson.

According to the St. Croix County Sheriff's report trooper Keith Wright, 36, was driving south on County A in his 2007 Ford Crown Victoria squad car about one-tenth mile south of McCutcheon Road.

A speeding car passed him going north and Wright pulled to the shoulder to make a U- turn in pursuit. Paul Forseth, 17, Hudson, following the trooper in a 1992 Buick Century apparently thought the trooper was pulling over to the shoulder to park and the two cars bumped, according to the report.

Both vehicles suffered only minor damage and nobody was hurt in the incident, said Capt. Jeff Klatt.
