Officer Served Suspension For Accident Between FDL Police Squad Cars


One of the two Fond du Lac Police officers involved in a crash between squad cars responding to a call for help from other officers received an unpaid suspension. The State Patrol investigated the accident and the Fond du Lac County District Attorney’s Office determined no criminal charges were warranted for Officers Melissa Sprangers and Kristen Kachelmeier. Fond du Lac Assistant Police Chief Steve Klein says the department did its own administrative review and found Sprangers was not acting within the scope of established department policies and state law. The two squads crashed at the intersection of Macy Street and Western Avenue. Both officers suffered injuries in the crash. Officer Sprangers suffered a broken collarbone and Officer Kachelmeier suffered a head injury with a concussion and an arm injury. Lights at the intersection were changing as the officers approached from the two different streets. Officer Kachelmeier had a red light that was turning green. Meanwhile Officer Sprangers had a green light that turned yellow and then red. Both officers have since recovered from their injuries and returned to duty.

Where is the state patrol report?
I talked to a city officer who said one of them was going 67 miles per hour...in the city...at the time they crashed
