TOMAHAWK (WAOW) – The Oneida County Sheriff's Department says a Harshaw man was killed Thursday when the car he was driving collided with a semi-truck on U.S. Highway 51 north of Tomahawk.
Jason Smoker, 42, died in the crash, the agency said Friday.
Sheriff Grady Hartman said the crash happened just minutes after a 911 call reported a reckless driver northbound on the highway.
Another 911 call four minutes later at 2:02 p.m. reported the crash about three miles north of U.S. Highway 8, the sheriff said in a statement.
Hartman said the investigation indicates the automobile crossed over the center line and struck the semi's trailer.
The driver of the car was alone, the sheriff said.
One year later, Bob Look - Dianne's husband, and Scott Sann - Sara'shusband, remember every detail of the tragic day.
