Fatal Crash on Highway 23 West of Fond du Lac

A 71-year-old
man from Oakfield was killed in a two vehicle crash on Highway 23 at the intersection
with County Highway C in Fond du Lac County Monday afternoon. The Fond du Lac
County Sheriff’s Office along with the Town of Lamartine Fire Department and
North Fond du Lac Ambulance were called to the scene just after 3pm. Investigators
say the Oakfield man was driving south on County Highway C and after stopping at
the stop sign, proceeded into the intersection where he hit the passenger side
of a westbound semi. After hitting the truck, the car spun around and was hit
by the rear tires of the semi. The Oakfield man was pronounced dead at the
scene. The driver of the semi, a 31-year-old man from Eden, was not injured. Highway
23 was closed for around two hours as the Sheriff’s Office investigated the
crash. Also assisting at the scene were the Rosendale Police Department,
Wisconsin State Patrol and Lamartine First Responders.
