A single vehicle accident in the Town of Weyauwega Thursday claimed the life of an Appleton man. Waupaca County authorities say the 24 year-old man died around 6:30pm when he lost control of his vehicle at a high rate of speed on Railroad Grade Road, entered the south ditch, and struck several trees.
The man was partially ejected during the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene. This is the first fatality on Waupaca County roadways this year. The crash remains under investigation.
