A worker for a private landscaping company was critically injured this morning when he was stringing cable for a future holiday light installation over W. Wisconsin Avenue at Milwaukee Street about 12:40 a.m.
The worker was stringing the cable, and one cable was dangling over the roadway when it became entangled on a passing bus. Subsequently, the worker’s leg became ensnared in the cable and the leg was severed.
He remains in critical condition at a local hospital. Police continue the investigation.
