MAINE, WI (WTAQ) - Three people killed in a snow-related traffic crash near Wausau were members of an Oklahoma family.
They were identified Friday 34-year-old Roy Kato, his 34-year-old wife Jenny, and their 13-year-old son Joshua – all from Tecumseh Oklahoma.
The State Patrol said their vehicle slid into an oncoming vehicle Thursday morning northeast of Wausau on County Trunk “K” in the Marathon County town of Maine. Another member of the Kato family, 5-year-old Brook, was taken to a Wausau hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the oncoming vehicle, a 32-year-old Schofield man, was also taken to the hospital with injuries. The crash was still being investigated at last word.
It happened right after the Wausau area got three inches of snow.
