MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in Manitowoc County said alcohol and speed were both factors in a one-vehicle crash that killed two men and seriously injured another.
The victims were identified as 29-year-old Justin Wieberdink of Sheboygan and 26-year-old Jonathan Ingram of Manitowoc. Both died at the scene of the crash, which occurred early Tuesday -- and both were wearing seat belts.
A 29-year-old Sheboygan man received what officials called an incapacitating injury, and was flown to a Neenah hospital.
Officials said Wieberdink was driving a pickup truck when it veered into a ditch, overturned, and hit a tree and a house.
It happened on County Line Road in the Manitowoc County town of Meeme, north of the Sheboygan County line.
The State Patrol has performed a reconstruction of the crash, and toxicology test results are pending.
