Suspected intoxication in fatal wrong-way accident

A fatal two-vehicle wrong way accident that occurred on September 21 is thought by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to have been caused by a heavily intoxicated driver, FOX 6 News reported.

The Kenosha County accident happened at 1:00 a.m. on westbound Interstate 94 and resulted in the death of one person and injury of three others. According to a report from the transportation department, a white pickup truck driven by a 19-year-old unnamed Milwaukee local was headed the wrong direction down I-94’s northbound lanes when it collided with an oncoming pickup truck.

The 19-year-old suspected drunk driver, who incurred critical injuries, was taken to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee while his 17-year-old passenger, who sustained minor injuries, was taken to St. Catherine’s Hospital for treatment.

The driver of the pickup that was driving the correct direction, 48-year-old Grafton resident Robert Miller, died at the site of the accident. Miller’s passenger, 47-year-old Christine Miller, was transported to St. Catherine’s Hospital for treatment of her non-life-threatening injuries.
