Oshkosh Man Hit & Killed by Truck on I-41

A 24-year-old man from Oshkosh is dead after being hit by a
semi tractor-trailer while walking along Interstate 41 early Sunday morning. Winnebago
County Sheriff’s Deputies along with the Wisconsin State Patrol and Oshkosh
Fire Department were called to the scene on I-41 southbound, south of State Highway
44 around 2:44 AM. Investigators say the 24-year-old was walking in the travel
lanes of the interstate when he was hit by the semi. The truck driver, a
55-year-old man from Van Dyne, tried to avoid hitting the pedestrian, but was
unable to. The truck driver was not injured, and neither alcohol nor drugs were
a factor in the crash. No citations have been issued. The interstate was closed
for around six hours for investigation and crash reconstruction. The name of
the victim is being withheld pending notification of family.
