Mattress Causes 3-Car Sheboygan Crash

Two mattresses fell from the roof of an SUV and triggered a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 43 Wednesday night, police say.

According to officials with the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department, a Kentucky man driving a semitrailer was hospitalized after his truck jackknifed when he was trying to avoid the mattresses shortly after 11:00 p.m. Wednesday. Sergeant Blaine Spicer said the mattresses were tied to a 1998 Ford Exploer driven by 36 year-old Steve Wideman. Wideman was traveling north on Interstate 43 when a bungee cord snapped near state Highway 42.

Wideman’s girlfriend, Sarah Kloepping, 21, was behind him in a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am. A semi driven by 50 year-old William Jaggers, of Horse Cave, Kentucky, was behind Kloepping. As Kloepping braked to avoid the mattress Jaggers attempted to steer away from her vehicle, causing his rig to jackknife.

Jaggers sustained an arm injury in the accident and was transported to St. Nicholas Hospital for treatment.
