Names Released In Fatal FDL County Accident

Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s officials say a 4-year-old girl from Elkhart Lake died in the two-vehicle accident in the Town of Calumet Wednesday afternoon. Addison Nye was in a car driven by 19-year-old Alix Cash of Kiel who was flown to Theda Clark Regional Medical Center with critical injuries. Sheriff’s Captain Rick Olig says identifying the two and then notifying family was difficult. Cash went through a stop sign on Calmar Road at County Highway W.  The pickup truck that hit her car was driven by 62-year-old Robert Knaus of the Town of Calumet. He and his passenger 57-year-old Cynthia Knaus were taken to St. Agnes Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Nye is the 9th person to die in a traffic accident in the County this year and the second 4-year-old. Thirty-seven-year-old Christopher Wachter of Sheboygan Falls and his 4-year-old son Landon were killed in a 3-vehicle accident on Highway 23 east on January 21st.
