The Portage Co. Sheriff’s Office is reporting that one man has succumbed to injuries he sustained in an Oct. 30 crash at County Hwy. J and 9th St. in the Tow of Stockton.
Emergency crews responded to the intersection at 12:39 p.m. when a caller reported a two-vehicle collision. A 2012 Ford pickup truck driven by 94-year-old Joseph Kaminski of Alban, failed to stop at a stop sign and entered the intersection, striking the front driver’s side of a 2017 GMC SUV traveling north on County Hwy. J.
Kaminski was transported by Life Link III medical helicopter to Aspirus Wausau. He died from his injuries on Nov. 2, Sheriff Mike Lukas said.
Four people in the SUV, including a 28-year-old female driver, a 32-year-old man, and two children, a girl, 5, and a three-year-old boy, all from the Town of Amherst, were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Lukas said the crash remains under investigation.
The Portage County Sheriff’s Office, Portage County Ambulance, Life Link III Medical, Stockton Fire and Rescue, and Stockton Emergency Medical Responders, all responded to the scene.
