Truck Catches Fire In Grant County

A Platteville man escaped injury after his truck caught fire after hitting a power pole in Grant County last week. The incident happened on County Road U on Thursday evening near the intersection of Rattlesnake Road in Beetown Township.  According to the sheriff’s office a truck driven by 25 year old Brad Kruppe was traveling south on County U, when he lost control on the snow-covered road. The truck crashed into a power pole coming to rest near the pole. Kruppe left the scene to contact police. Sometime after Kruppe left, his truck caught fire and was fully engulfed when fire crews arrived. They were able to put the fire out, but the truck was a total loss.
