Names Released In Fatal Accident On Lap Road
Names have been released from the fatal Fond du Lac County accident on Lap Road that happened early Saturday morning. Nineteen-year-old Jacob Zielicke of Mt. Calvary was driving the vehicle. Sheriff’s Captain Rick Olig says Zielicke went over the centerline and struck a driveway culvert that resulted in the death of 20-year-old Jake Treptow of Fond du Lac who was his passenger. Zielicke was flown to Theda Clark Regional Medical Center. Jacob lives just down the road from the accident site. Zielicke is in fair condition at Theda Clark. Olig says the Zielicke family is no strangers to tragedy. Jacob lost a brother, Joshua, in a traffic accident in Fond du Lac County in October of 2009 when a motor home pulled out in front of his motorcycle. Joshua was 19-years-old at the time of that accident.
