OCONTO, Wis. (WBAY) – A man who died after a crash on Highway 22 was publicly identified Monday as Patrick Courchaine, 46, from Oconto.

The sheriff’s office says Friday at around 1:20 p.m., a driver was making a left turn into a driveway near Elm Grove School Road when Courchaine, trying to pass traffic, hit that car.

Courchaine’s car went into a ditch and rolled over. He was thrown out of his vehicle.

Courchaine was transported to a Green Bay hospital. The Oconto County Sheriff’s Office was notified Saturday afternoon that he died as a result of his injuries.

The sheriff’s office says unsafe passing by Courchaine appears to have contributed to the crash.

It’s the county’s fourth fatal crash this year.
