FDL County Fatal Accident Update
The 26-year-old Chilton woman killed in a traffic accident in the Town of Rosendale Monday morning was just beginning a new shift at work. Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Captain Rick Olig says Amber Marie Dickerson worked in the Ripon area and was just starting on the first shift.She went through a stop sign at Olden Road and hit the back axles of a semi-truck that was heading north on County Highway M. Then her vehicle caught fire. Olig says it’s up to the County Medical Examiner to determine, but Dickerson may have been killed by the impact and not by the fire. A witness who tried to remove her from the vehicle told investigators she was either dead or unconscious. Olig says speed wasn’t a factor in the accident. He says she might not have remembered there was a stop sign there. It was the County’s 7th fatal traffic accident of the year.
