State Patrol identifies men killed in crash near Redgranite
WAUSHARA COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) - Three men from Mexico were identified as victims of a crash near Redgranite.
The Wisconsin State Patrol identified the men as:
- Santiago Perez Domingo, 26
- Silvino Apolinar Mateos, 26
- Sergio Estuardo Morales De Leon, 38
Domingo and De Leon were not wearing seat belts, according to the State Patrol.
On Sept. 21, at about 11:50 a.m., crews were called to a crash on County Highway H west of Badger Drive.
The vehicle was traveling east on County H when the driver failed to make a curve in the road. The vehicle went onto the shoulder and into a ditch.
“The vehicle began to rotate and struck a grass driveway where it became airborne for approximately 70 feet, before striking a tree roof first,” says the State Patrol.
The driver and two passengers were killed.
The agency believes speed is a factor in the crash, but the crash remains under investigation.
The Waushara County Sheriff’s Office and Poy Sippi Fire Department assisted at the scene.
