November 23, 2016:  SHERIFF'S SPECIAL NEWS RELEASE

On November 22, 2016, at approximately 12:59 PM, Deputies responded to the intersection of State Highway 69 and County Trunk C for a semi versus pickup truck accident. Subsequently, it was discovered that a southbound tractor-trailer, operated by James S. Chipman (64), of Pigeon, Michigan, had collided with a pickup driven by Paul L. Warner (63), of Oregon, Wisconsin. Warner had been traveling eastbound on County C and disregarded the stop sign at the intersection when struck broadside. The resulting impact rolled the pickup and ejected Warner and his passenger, William D. Burdick (35), of Madison, Wisconsin. The semi continued south and overturned on the opposite shoulder. The semi operator was uninjured; however, Burdick was pronounced dead at the scene, while Warner was airlifted by Medflight to the UW Hospital in Madison. The highway was closed and traffic detoured for approximately five hours to facilitate the investigation and removal of the vehicles. Alcohol did not appear to be a factor in this collision, and the Wisconsin State Patrol Accident Reconstruction Unit is assisting in the investigation.

This is Green County’s sixth traffic-related fatality in 2016.  

Assisting agencies included:  Monticello Police Department, Monticello Fire Department, New Glarus EMS, New Glarus Fire Department, Green County EMS, Wisconsin State Patrol, Wisconsin DNR, and Green County Hwy. Department.

 

Authorized by: Sheriff Mark A. Rohloff
