Driver causing fatal crash claims medical issues, remembers nothing

by

WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- It will take about two weeks to get results from blood tests on the man who drove his sport utility vehicle into a car and truck in Wausau Monday. Wausau Police Chief Jeffrey Hardel says the man driving the Ford Explorer claims he had medical issues and has no recollection of anything that happened in the crash. Hardel says a new privacy law prevents disclosing the man’s name.

Captain Ben Bliven says the investigation is continuing into the crash. He says they have followed standard procedure and taken a blood sample from the man and they are examining medical records to try and corroborate his story.

85-year-old Frances M. Wilk died from injuries sustained in the crash. She was waiting behind a truck at the 17th Avenue stoplights when she was rear-ended by the man in the Explorer.

The crash happened at about 11:00 a.m. Monday.
