Father and son killed in Dunn County crash
Lack of seatbelts, alcohol usage appeared to be factors
Authorities have identified a father and son who were killed in a two-vehicle crash in the Town of Lucas in Dunn County of western Wisconsin.
The Dunn County Sheriff's Office said it happened late Saturday night on Highway 29. Investigators said it appears a westbound passenger car driven by 30-year-old Joshua A. Larrieu, of Menomonie, crossed the centerline and was struck on the passenger side by an eastbound SUV shortly before midnight.
Larrieu and his father, 57-year-old William C. Larrieu, of Elmwood, died at the scene. The sheriff's office said neither was wearing seatbelts, and that alcohol appeared to be a factor related to their vehicle's role in the crash.
The driver of the SUV, a 52-year-old Menomonie woman, was taken to a Menomonie hospital. She was wearing a seatbelt.
