Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly has been ticketed for failing to stop at a stop sign after the car he was driving slammed into a van, sending two people to the hospital.

Kelly was ticketed near his home in North Prairie, in Waukesha County, on Aug. 9, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Friday.

The driver of the van, Frank Remfrey, told the newspaper that “if it wasn’t for air bags and seat belts, I think we’d be dead.”

Remfrey and his passenger were both taken to the hospital. Remfrey said they are sore but otherwise OK.

Remfrey said the van was totaled. Kelly’s car was towed from the scene.

“Like most car accidents, it was an unfortunate event for all concerned,” Kelly said.

A court hearing is scheduled for Sept. 25.
