A 73-year old man who was killed when a crane tipped over onto his car has been identified.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident at the intersection of Highway 67 and Highway 45. The intersection is roughly 15 miles from Fond du Lac. The man’s wife was a passenger in the car at the time of the accident. She was taken by Flight for Life helicopter service to a nearby hospital. She was released the night of the accident.
The accident occurred when the victim’s car pulled out in front of a crane truck. The crane truck swerved and braked to avoid hitting the car but that caused the crane to flip over. The crane part of the truck landed directly on the victim’s car.
