Sheboygan man dies in collision with Plymouth squad car

LYNDON, Wis. (WBAY) - UPDATE 9/17:

Sheboygan County officials have released names in a fatal crash involving a Sheboygan man and a Plymouth Police Officer.

The Sheriff's Office says 77-year-old Dennis Teetzen of Sheboygan was killed in the crash Monday night.

Police say Teetzen was eastbound on County Road N in the town of Lyndon when he failed to stop at a stop sign at State Highway 57. Teetzen's vehicle struck a Plymouth Police squad driven by 35-year-old Officer Lindsay Baumhardt. Investigators say Teetzen's vehicle crossed the highway into the path of Officer Baumhardt's squad.

Teetzen was found dead at the scene.

Baumhardt was taken to a Sheboygan hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The Sheriff's Office says Officer Baumhardt was on duty in a marked squad. She was returning to Plymouth from an out-of-town assignment. The officer was not driving in emergency mode. She was not responding to a call at the time of the crash.

The crash happened at about 3:11 p.m.


The Sheboygan County Sheriff's Office says a man died and a woman was hurt in a two-car crash Monday afternoon in the town of Lyndon, near Waldo.

Deputies responded to a 911 call to the intersection of Highway 57 and County Rd N at 3:11 p.m.

The 77-year-old man was dead when they arrived. A 35-year-old woman was taken to a hospital for her injuries and is expected to recover.

The sheriff's office says the investigation is in the early stages but it appears the man was going south on Highway 57 when he made a left turn to County N in front of an oncoming vehicle.

The victims were not publicly identified, which is routine to allow time for notifying relatives. The sheriff's office may release more information on Tuesday.

The Wisconsin State Patrol is reconstructing the crash.

First responders from Waldo, Cascade and Plymouth also assisted at the crash scene, as well as Orange Cross Ambulance and the Sheboygan County Highway Department.
