Wausau man could be charged again for Nasewaupee fatal crash

A Wausau man could be charged with Operating While Intoxicated again after having previous counts dismissed in Door County Circuit Court last week. Jeffrey Olcott was behind the wheel of his truck when he struck a car traveling northbound on County Road PD. The crash killed 16-year-old Gabriela Jacques and 52-year-old Joseph Jacques while injuring another when they ran a stop sign at the intersection. According to court records, Olcott was charged with refusing to take a sobriety test following the crash on May 15th. That charge was dismissed on May 24th. On that same day, OWI charges were also dismissed after a citation was filed on May 22nd. The dismissals were made without prejudice, meaning Olcott could be charged again. In an email sent to, Door County District Attorney Colleen Nordin said “this matter is still under investigation by the Door County Sheriff’s Office and the Wisconsin State Patrol.  A charging decision will be made once the investigation is complete.”
