Accident Report Released On Deputy Involved Fatal Accident

17-Jul-2013

The Wisconsin State Patrol this week issued a report on a fatal accident last fall involving a 20-year-old Fond du man and a Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Deputy who was responding to a hit and run accident. Deputy Ryan Flood collided with Matthew Koenigs at the intersection of County Highways B and K in the Town of Eden. According to the report Flood was traveling at speeds of 80 to 92 miles per hour when the crash occurred. The author of the report, Trooper Mark Andraschko, says in order for Flood to have driven a two-mile span in less than 78 seconds he would have averaged 92 miles per hour. It’s estimated he was driving over 70 miles per hour at the time of the crash. Flood was driving without the squad car’s emergency lights or sirens, which is allowed in certain circumstances including if the deputy believes a felony is in progress. The incident is the subject of current civil and criminal litigation. Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel is determining if there was a criminal violation. The accident happened last August 24th.

Maybe someone should read the actual report that is posted on the reporter. The speed at the time of the crash was 74, I have to wonder how many speeding tickets have been written in fondy county for 74 mph. If you were the victim waiting for the cop, would you think 74 was too fast? Not saying the cop shouldn't be held accountable but the other driver pulled out in front of him, what was he doing before the crash?

Did you read the actual accident report because if you read the accident report and not just the reporter's news article..you wouldn't ask those questions. The 74 mph was at impact which was after the officer had let off the gas and braked. Two miles were traveled in about 90 seconds. The situation in which he was responding was a non emergency situation. If you did read the actual report, you may want to read again.

I did read the report and I have to wonder how accurate the computer times are and they are synchronized. I don't know what will happen in this case, I just hope the cop isn't sacrificed to satisfy someone who couldn't do his job and prefers to sit back and second guess the cop. Next time there is a job opening, I would hope you would apply and see how you are judged.

The report was done by a state patrol. It doesn't matter what job you do, you can be judged. When you make a bad choice there are consequences for your actions. Ultimately, had lights and sirens been on maybe we would not be having this discussion and I wonder if you would feel the same if it was your child who lost his life.
