A Wisconsin woman was recently killed in a Mosinee bicycle-car accident. Her first husband died in a bicycle accident on the same road in September, 2008.
The accident occurred at about 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 20 on Highway KK near Rifle Road in the town of Mosinee. Forty-four-year-old Tammy Gass was riding her bicycle in the westbound lane of Highway KK when she was hit from behind by forty-two-year-old Tracy A. Kruzicki. Mrs. Gass was taken to Aspirus Wausau Hospital, where she was pronounced dead from her injuries.
Additional details about the accident have not been released because it is still under investigation. However, according to the Marathon County Sheriff’s Office, Kruzicki was arrested on a charge of driving with a suspended license and was released later in the day. A blood draw was done, but alcohol is not considered to be a contributing factor.
Mrs. Gass was competitive cyclist and stay-at-home-mom to four children. She was training for a job as an airport screener for the Transportation Security Administration. In 2008, Mrs. Gass was married to Gregg Bednorski. He was only 41 on September 18, 2008, when he died after crashing his bicycle into a parked car on Highway KK. Mrs. Gass remarried in January and was planning a honeymoon trip to Costa Rica. Mrs. Gass and her husband, Tim Gass, were raising four children from their prior marriages.
The Wisconsin personal injury attorneys at Hupy & Abraham would like to offer our condolences to the family and friend of Mrs. Gass. We’d also like to remind all drivers that as the weather warms up, it is important to watch for bicyclists on the road.
