Victims' names released from Sevastopol fatal crash

The victims from last week’s fatal crash in the Town of Sevastopol have been identified. 


Richard F. Straubel, 78, of Cape Coral, Fla. and Ephraim, 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 occupants of that vehicle, 60-year-old Tracy C. Ahola and 53-year-old Kimberly J. Ahola of Egg Harbor tried to avoid the collision when they pulled onto the shoulder.


Straubel was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Tracy was airlifted to a Green Bay hospital, while Kimberly was driven via ambulance to Door County Medical Center. The release from the Door County Sheriff’s Department did not give updates on the Aholas’ condition.


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.
