Waupun Man Dies In Friday Crash

Speed and alcohol do not appear to the be the factors in a fatal crash Friday evening in Fond du Lac County. KFIZ originally reported that in error.

The Fond du Lac County Communication Center was notified Friday June 17th, 2022 just after 6:30 PM, of a single vehicle accident on Savage Rd, North of Heideman Rd, in the Town of Waupun.

Deputies from the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and were assisted by Waupun Fire Department, Lifestar Ambulance, Waupun Police Department, and Wisconsin State Patrol.

Initial investigation showed a motorcycle was traveling south on Savage Rd., when it crossed the centerline and the driver overcorrected. The overcorrection caused the motorcycle to enter the ditch, where the operator lost control, causing the motorcycle to flip multiple times before coming to a rest on the shoulder of the road.

The driver of the motorcycle was identified as a 69 year-old male from Waupun and was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing a helmet.

At this time, names are not being released pending notification of family members.
