Christopher Leurquin was driving northwards on Wisconsin 26 when he lost control of his vehicle on a curve and ended up in the southbound lanes. Leurquin collided with a southbound car driven by Thea Mojzych, aged 22, of Streator, IL.
39-year-old Leurquin of De Pere and Mojzych were pronounced dead at the scene. Rodrick Harris, 22, of Oak Park, IL was airlifted in a Flight for Life helicopter to Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah, and later transferred to University Hospital in Madison. His condition was critical as of Sunday afternoon.
The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office reported that the crash occurred Saturday night, just before 11 p.m. north of Willow Creek Road in Waupun, and added that speed and alcohol were not involved in the accident.
Wisconsin State Patrol, Waupun Fire Department, Brooks Ambulance and Brandon-Fairwater Police Department all responded to the scene. Highway 26 remained closed for about three hours.
Even though Highway 26 has been upgraded in recent years, the Sheriff’s Office still routinely patrols Highway 26 in western Fond du Lac County because of a string of accidents, dense traffic and frequent speeding violations.
The attorneys of Hupy & Abraham wish to express their warmest sympathy to the family and friends of Thea Mojzych and Christopher Leurquin.
