Speed and alcohol factors in deaths of two Wisconsin residents

Residents in the community of Wisconsin Rapids are still grieving after an accident claimed the lives of two of its residents just two days ago. Although the accident is still under investigation, police currently believe that alcohol was likely a contributing factor in the crash.

Two fatal Wisconsin accidents occur within days of each other

Residents in and around Jefferson County are probably thinking that their roads are a little bit more dangerous this week after two separate car accidents in the area claimed the lives of two people within days of each other. While these crashes are both reminders of how even one mistake behind the wheel can change a life forever.

Redgranite man struck by SUV while operating lawn mower in street

Far to our east in Redgranite a community is grieving this month for the loss of an 81-year-old local man who lost his life just days ago in a tragic accident involving another vehicle. Police say that the man appears to have been abiding by all traffic laws just prior to the accident-a fact that unfortunately did not prevent him from being involved in the fatal crash.
The man had just left his home and was on his way to a family member's house to cut their grass. The man was driving his riding lawn mower in the shoulder, making the 10-block trip to the family member's house, when he slowly began drifting to his left into traffic. It's at this point that he was hit by an SUV driven by a 56-year-old Milwaukee man.

Study finds your designated driver may be just as impaired as you

We've all heard the familiar phrase: don't drink and drive. For most of us here in Wisconsin, this is a common sense statement that needs no preface. Another common phrase encourages us to drive responsibly and find a designated driver. Seems simple enough. But according to a new study, about 40 percent of designated drivers consume at least some amount of alcohol before getting behind the wheel of a car. Furthermore, one-fifth of them may have been just as impaired as the people they were supposed to be bringing home safely.

Wrongful death case possible in Wisconsin boat accident

Now that the weather has gotten warmer, a lot of people in Wisconsin are enjoying being on the water. While the goal of being out on a boat is to relax and enjoy the water, boaters must also remember that they are piloting a vehicle and accidents do occur. If boaters aren't careful, they could end up facing criminal charges and wrongful death actions if someone dies in a boating accident.

Suspect in custody for hit-and-run accident involving student

Wisconsin police still have not released the name of the 41-year-old Milwaukee man in their custody who they believe was involved in a serious hit-and-run accident just days ago. Although charges have not been pressed at this time, police do believe that alcohol was the reason for the man's reckless driving that could have claimed the life of a 23-year-old Marquette University student.

DNR warns of OWI risk for boaters this summer

When most people in Wisconsin think about drunken driving, they typically think about a person driving a car. But as officers from the DNR point out, the legal limit for boaters is the same as any other recreational vehicle and can carry with it some of the same consequences as well.

Car accident reconstruction leads to charges for Wisconsin man

Back on July 2, 2012, a crash occurred in West Point where Highways 188 and 60 meet. One man died that day. Now, almost one year later, the Wisconsin State Patrol's car accident reconstruction has led to the other driver being charged with homicide in connection with the death of the other driver.

Man driving under the influence in Wisconsin was also texting?

Wisconsin State Patrol participates in annual road-check program

Understanding the seriousness of commercial truck accidents is something the Wisconsin State Patrols tries bring to the public's attention at every chance it gets. As readers of our blog know, accidents involving commercial trucks--especially large semi-trucks--can end in catastrophic injury as well as death. This is usually in part because of the trucks' size and weight which can turn even a simple fender-bender into a deadly crash.
