NFDL Man Charged With Negligent Homicide

Negligent homicide charges have been brought against a 33-year-old North Fond du Lac man for an accident on I-41 last year that killed a 26-year-old man and 8-year-old boy from Neenah. Travis Wollersheim was released on a $20,000 signature bond after he made his initial appearance in Fond du Lac County Court Tuesday morning. According to the criminal complaint Wollersheim was going 68 miles an hour when his SUV ran into the back of a car that was behind a stopped semi on I-41 between the Johnson and Military Road exits in Fond du Lac on June 22nd of 2016. Traffic had stopped due to construction. Wollersheim, a passenger in his car, and the 24-year-old Neenah woman driving the other car were injured in the crash, but two passengers in the car were killed. The investigation determined Wollersheim did not have alcohol or drugs in his system and was not on his cell phone when the collision occurred. He told investigators he was looking into his passenger side mirror because he planned to take an exit when he looked up and saw the car in front of him had stopped. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 10th.
