One dead and three injured in Greenfield car crash

| Sep 17, 2012 | Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents

Car accidents can be a life-changing moment in anyone’s life, and in the event of a fatal car crash, this couldn’t be closer to the truth.

A 15-year-old Vilas County boy will grow up without his mother after a fatal car accident took the life of his 51-year-old mother earlier this September

According to police reports, the accident occurred at approximately 5 p.m. when the 51-year-old was driving herself, her son and a 19-year-old friend north on a Wisconsin road. Everything changed in a matter of moments though when their car was struck by a 70-year-old woman driving a pickup truck.

The only fatality was the 51-year-old driver who had recently joined the Northwoods Wildlife Center team as the executive director. The two teenage passengers were immediately taken to a local children’s hospital where they were considered to be in critical condition. The 70-year-old driver was taken to an area hospital with non-threatening injuries.

Police records indicate that there was a third vehicle involved in the accident but there were no injuries reported.

According to the National Safety Council, the number of senior drivers is on the rise and will increase by 70 percent over the next two decades. They suggest that elderly people’s children should communicate their concerns about driving issues to their aging parents. For older drivers, knowing your limitations can also be very helpful. For elderly drivers, self-assessment tools, education, driver refresher courses and public transportation may be better suited to avoid a fatal accident such as this in the future.
