Fatal Accident In Town Of Calumet
Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s officials say a 73-year-old Malone man died of natural causes and not from injuries in a car accident he was involved in Sunday afternoon. Sheriff’s Captain Ryan Waldschmidt says during an autopsy the County Medical Examiner’s Office determined Gary Miller died of “heart-related complications” and his death will not be counted as a traffic fatality. Miller was involved in a head-on crash on Highway 151 in the Town of Calumet. The other driver, 65-year-old Christine Schwenck of Malone, was taken to St. Agnes Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s officials say a 73-year-old Malone man many not have died of injuries from a head-on accident he was involved in Sunday on Highway 151 in the Town of Calumet. Gary Miller was heading north when he crossed over the center line and was struck by a vehicle driven by 65-year-old Christine Schwenck also of Malone. Sheriff’s Captain Ryan Waldschmidt says there is a possibility Miller suffered a medical condition prior to the accident and the medical examiner will determine whether the accident caused his death. He says a medical condition could be a contributing factor based on witness statements and evidence at the scene. If Miller died from injuries suffered in the accident it would be the County’s 9th traffic fatality of the year. Schwenck was taken to St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac with non-life threatening injuries. Alcohol and speed are not considered factors in the accident.
