MARINETTE, WI (WTAQ) - A northeast Wisconsin man is under arrest for causing a head-on crash that killed a three-year-old Michigan boy and injured three of his family members.
Marinette County Sheriff Jerry Sauve said a 28-year-old Wausaukee man was taken to jail on possible charges of causing death and injury by drunk driving.
The crash happened late Friday night on Highway 141 in the town of Middle Inlet. Investigators said the suspect’s pick-up truck slammed into a car.
3-year-old Christopher Croley of Ishpeming Michigan was killed. His 44-year-old mother Jodi Betts Croley was seriously hurt, as well as the boy’s two sisters ages 16-and-17. They were all taken to a Green Bay hospital, and Christopher died on the way there.
The pickup driver escaped injury, and he was alone in his vehicle.
