One dead, two injured in multi-vehicle highway crash

A Florida man died and two others had to be transported to area hospitals following a multi-vehicle accident north of Sturgeon Bay on Wednesday afternoon. The accident occurred just before 2:45 p.m. on State Highway 42/57 near Walker Road in the Town of Sevastopol after the Florida man reportedly crossed the centerline in his vehicle while traveling north and struck the rear tires of a semi-trailer heading south. The impact sent him in the direction of a sports-utility vehicle that was also heading south. The  60-year-old man and the 53-year-old woman tried to avoid the collision when they pulled onto the shoulder. The Florida man was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The driver of the sports-utility vehicle was airlifted to Green Bay hospital while his passenger was driven via ambulance to Door County Medical Center. The Sevastopol Fire Responders, Sturgeon Bay Fire Department, Door County Emergency Services, Door County Highway Department, Door County Sheriff’s Office, and the Wisconsin State Patrol Crash Reconstruction Unit responded to the accident. The Brown County Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy on the deceased individual later today. No names have been released until family members can be notified. The accident is still under investigation.
