HOBART, Wis. (WBAY) – The victims of Friday’s crash near the Brown/Outagamie County line were publicly identified Monday as 78-year-old Donna Dutter of Menasha and 76-year-old Russell Tritt Jr. of Omro.
Their car collided with a dump truck at the intersection of County Highway U, also known as County Line Road, and County EE.
Hobart-Lawrence Police Chief Randy Bani says Dutter pulled out from a stop sign on U, failing to yield the right of way to the truck going west on EE. They collided in the intersection, and the car came to a rest in the northwest corner of the intersection.
The crash happened Friday just before 2 o’clock in the afternoon.
Two medical helicopters were sent to the scene but Dutter and Tritt died before they could be transported to hospitals.
The driver of the dump truck, a 34-year-old man from Larson, wasn’t hurt.
Chief Bani says the investigation into the crash isn’t closed.
