Joshua Manderscheid, aged 17, of Fond du Lac, was traveling west on Winnebago Drive when he fell asleep behind the wheel and his minivan ran off the road at a curve, striking a tree. The crash sent Jordan Jacobson, 16, of Fond du Lac, flying from the back seat to the front, his head hitting the windshield.
Emergency crews extricated a passenger in the front seat, Cameron Jacobson, aged 17, also of Fond du Lac, in critical condition. The victim was taken by a Flight for Life helicopter to Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah.
Another helicopter took Jordan Jacobson to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin-Fox Valley in Neenah, according to the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office report.
Mandersheid was taken to St. Agnes Hospital with minor injuries and was later released. He had been wearing a seat belt, whereas the two passengers were not restrained.
The accident occurred on Wednesday at 3.05 p.m. west of Sandy Beach Road. According to police officials, alcohol does not seem to be involved in the crash.
The Wisconsin accident attorneys of Hupy & Abraham wish Cameron and Jordan Jacobson a speedy and full recovery from the shock and terrible injuries sustained in this accident.
