Fatal Crash in Taylor County
On Wednesday, September 21st at 10:55 A.M., the Taylor County Sheriff's Office received a report of a one vehicle accident with injuries on County Highway A, just east of Larson Drive in the township of Holway. Taylor County deputies, along with the Stetsonville Fire Department, Stetsonville First Responders, Taylor County Coroner and Medford Ambulance were dispatched.
Upon arrival at the scene, deputies found a deceased male partially ejected from the vehicle; no other occupants were located. The deceased driver of the vehicle was found to be 61 year old Ronald S. Konieczny of Owen, Wisconsin.
The preliminary investigation into the accident indicates the vehicle operated by Konieczny was westbound on County A when he crossed over into the opposite lane of traffic and into the south ditch. The vehicle continued to travel in the south ditch and collided with a driveway embankment causing the vehicle to overturn coming to rest on it's roof, partially ejecting Konieczny from the vehicle.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
