DYCKESVILLE, Wis. (AP) — Authorities in northeastern Wisconsin have identified the victims in a wrong-way car crash that killed three people and critically injured two others.
The Brown County Sheriff’s Office says 38-year-old Todd Beyer of Green Bay drove the wrong way onto an exit ramp and entered Highway 57 going south in the northbound lanes Friday. He collided head-on with a northbound car near Green Bay.
Beyer was pronounced dead at a hospital. Two women from the Appleton area in the backseat of the northbound car died at the scene. They are identified as 84-year-old Ila Schabow and her daughter, 56-year-old Lynn Eckes.
The 32-year-old woman who was driving the northbound car and her 58-year-old father, who was a front-seat passenger, remain hospitalized. All four people in the northbound car were related.
