Three people were killed and two more were injured in a two-car crash in New Berlin.
The Wisconsin traffic accident occurred at 9:43 a.m. on Sunday, February 12, 2012 at the intersection of S. Sunny Slope Road and W. Glencove Parkway. An unidentified 36-year-old man from New Berlin was headed north on S. Sunny Slope Road in a Chrysler 300. The car went off the right side of the road and crashed into a Ford Focus wagon that was stopped at a stop sign. The Chrysler continued north and went over a dip, passed between two pine trees and stopped about 40 feet into a nearby yard.
Three occupants of the Ford Focus were killed. They included driver Thomas Wagner, his wife Catherine Wagner, and his sister Patricia White. The driver’s brother, William Wagner, was seriously injured and was transported Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa by Flight for Life. He is currently being treated in the ICU, but is expected to make a full recovery.
The driver of the Chrysler was taken to Waukesha Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police are investigating the possibility that the accident was caused by a medical condition.
Thomas and Catherine Wagner are survived by their daughter.
Wisconsin car crashes can happen at any time. The Wagners and Ms. White were on their way to a birthday party in Fort Atkinson. They didn’t do anything wrong, and they never expected that tragedy would occur. The Wisconsin car accident attorneys at Hupy and Abraham would like to offer our condolences to the Wagner and White families.
