    DOVER — The Racine County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday morning identified the drivers in Monday afternoon’s semi versus pickup crash at highways 11 and J.

    According to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office, George Enerson, 29 of Delavan, was driving the pickup and the driver of the semi tractor trailer was Anthony Bhimull, 34, of Twin Lakes. Bhimull was reported to be in critical condition Monday at Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa, according to hospital spokeswoman Nalissa Wienke. Enerson’s condition was not available Tuesday.

    Both men were seriously injured Monday afternoon when their vehicles collided at highways 11 and J at the Burlington/Dover town line and then slid off the road, the semi landing on its side. The crash was reported at 1:23 p.m.

    According to the Sheriff’s Office, preliminary investigation indicated that the pickup was southbound on Highway J (English Settlement Road). It appeared the pickup did not yield the right of way or ran the stop sign at Highway 11 and was struck by the semi truck that was eastbound on 11.

    The vehicles ended up in the ditch line and a crop field just southeast of the intersection. The semi, owned by a local transport company, spilled its load of stone in the process, sheriff’s officials said.

    The pickup lost its load of ground marker flags and spray paint. Some of the paint cans ruptured, leaving blotches of red paint on the vehicles.

    This was a DPG (unibar) locator. My best friend works with him. They took him off life support yesterday.

    Makes me wander how distracted this guy was. How often have you found yourself on the phone or glancing at the locate instructions on your laptop as you head to your next ticket? I'm guilty of it. Was he just in too much of a hurry trying to keep up with his ticket load?

    Don't get distracted guys. I know it's hard not to when your supervisor is brow-beating you for production but the people who truly care about you would much rather you come home with less money than to never come home at all. Shut the lid on your laptop between tickets. It's just not worth the risk. Let the contractors shit talk you when they see you sitting in your truck reading locate instructions. They can suck it.

    This is going to be a rough holiday season for the people who loved him.
