OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Winnebago County sheriff’s deputies are trying to determine if icy roads caused a crash that killed a motorist early this morning along Highway 26 southwest of Oshkosh.
Authorities said a box truck was going north when it struck an oncoming car.
The car driver died at the scene. The truck driver was hurt but not hospitalized.
Much of northern and eastern Wisconsin had 2-to-4 inches of snow this morning, and most of the southwest had an inch or less.
