— A Walworth County sheriff’s lieutenant was involved in a non-injury traffic accident Monday afternoon.

At 3:43 p.m., a Nissan Titan pickup truck driven by Gina M. Peter, 16, East Troy, reportedly slid through a stop sign on Hargraves Road at County D in Spring Prairie Township.


Her vehicle slid into the path of Lt. Kevin Williams, who was driving an unmarked Chevy Tahoe westbound on County D. The Tahoe hit the passenger side of the pickup, Wisconsin State Patrol trooper Robert Borek said.


Borek cited Peter for failure to stop. The road was snow-covered and slippery, Borek said.


No injuries were reported. Both drivers, the sole occupants in their vehicles, were wearing seatbelts, he said.


The airbag in the sheriff’s vehicle deployed, and it had to be towed, Borek said.
