TOWN OF BRILLION - Emergency resources from Calumet and Brown counties responded to the scene of a single-vehicle crash shortly before 8:30 a.m. on Friday, April 9, on the road that

demarks the border between the two counties, and the towns of Brillion and Holland.

The crash happened on Man-Cal Road, between County PP on the east and Winkler Road on the west.

It happened when an eastbound vehicle left the road, went into a ditch on the south side of the road and struck a tree.

An EMS first responder from the Town of Brillion was among the first on the scene, said the person was trapped in the vehicle, and called for the jaws of life.
