Man Killed After Striking Trailer, Crashing into Ditch

One man is dead following a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Esterbrook Road and Brown Road in the Township of Fond du Lac. Fond du Lac County deputies and paramedics were calls to the scene just before 7:30am Friday morning. 

Investigators believe the northbound vehicle failed to stop at a stop sign – and an eastbound vehicle then struck a utility trailer being towed by the other car. 

The collision sent the eastbound vehicle into a ditch, ejecting the 63-year old Fond du Lac man who was behind the wheel. He died at the scene. The 23-year old Poy Sippi man driving the northbound vehicle was not injured. 

The crash is still under investigation – but neither speed or alcohol are believed to be factors. The names of those involved have not been released.
