Ogema man killed in crash
A 32-year-old Ogema man is dead following a one-vehicle crash that occurred Sunday night in the town of Rib Lake. According to Taylor County Sheriff Larry Woebbeking, at 8:49 p.m. on Nov. 6, the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call reporting a vehicle had struck a utility pole and the driver appeared to be deceased. The location was reported to be on CTH C just North of Bonde Ave in the town of Rib Lake. Taylor County Sheriff’s Deputies along with Rib Lake Fire, Ambulance and Aspirus MedVac were dispatched. “Upon arrival on scene deputies determined that the driver of the vehicle, 32 year old Daniel R. Resch of Ogema was deceased,” Woebbeking stated. “The investigation into the cause of the vehicle crash indicated that Resch was traveling northbound on CTH C at a high rate of speed. Resch lost control of the vehicle causing it to overturn several times where it eventually came to rest after striking the utility pole. Alcohol and speed were both contributing factors in the crash,” Woebbeking stated.
