07/15/17 - Fatal Crash Hwy 151

Post Date:07/15/2017
On Saturday, July 15, 2017, at approximately 12:36am, the Fond du Lac County Communications Center received a report of a head-on crash with injuries on USH 151 and Hazel Ln. in the Township of Oakfield, Fond du Lac County. Prior to the report of a collision, the Communications Center did receive multiple calls that a vehicle was operating northbound in the southbound lanes of traffic on USH 151.

Initial investigation into the crash showed that the northbound vehicle, driven by a 27-year-old female from the St. Cloud area was northbound in the southbound lanes of travel at a high rate of speed. That vehicle struck a southbound vehicle driven by an 18-year-old female from the rural Waupun area. Speed and alcohol appear to be contributing factors into the crash.

After the initial collision, the northbound vehicle did come to rest within the median and the southbound vehicle came to rest within the roadway. There were no other occupants in either vehicle.

The 27-year-old female was air lifted from the scene by Theda-Star AirMedical with critical injuries and the 18-year-old was transported to St. Agnes with minor injuries, and was later released. Due to the substantial injuries received in the crash, the 27-year-old female did succumb to those injuries while at Theda Clark and was pronounced deceased.

During the crash investigation, the Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by Oakfield Fire and First-Responders, LifeStar Ambulance, and the Fond du Lac County Highway Department.

The crash remains under investigation by the Fond du Lac Sheriff’s Office. Names of those involved are not being released at this time.
