Harshaw, WI — Three people were killed after two vehicles collided on U.S. 51 near Harshaw: two people in a car and a propane truck driver. Police in Oneida County identified Jeremy Ritchie, 22, as the driver of the propane tanker truck, but did not release the names of the two women killed in the car.
According to their reports, Ritchie was driving his propane truck north along U.S. 51 just before 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday evening, January 14, 2014. As Ritchie neared Fernwood Road, an oncoming car lost control and swerved into his lane.
The resulting collision killed the two women in the other car and caused Ritchie’s truck to end up in a ditch. He died at the scene as well. It’s not clear why the other driver lost control, but ice and snow on the roads may have been a factor.
Police are investigating further.
