3/6/17 – A Portage man was killed in a two-vehicle accident Sunday in Columbia County. The wreck happened at 3:13pm closing both lanes of State Highway 33 near Interstate 90-94 just west of the I39 interchange, in Caledonia Township. Sheriff Dennis Richards says a car driven by 53-year-old Brent Pigorsch of rural Portage crossed the centerline and struck a vehicle driven by a 53-year-old Portage man whose name has not yet been released. Pigorsch was transported to the hospital for injuries received in the crash. Highway 33 between Interstate 39 and Interstate 90/94 was closed until around 8pm.
