Sheriff: Drunken driving, lack of seat belt cause of injuries in crash

TOWN OF THERESA, Wis. - The Dodge County Sheriff's Office said two people were injured in a crash between a tractor-trailer and a pickup truck.  

It happened around 7:13 p.m. on Saturday at the intersection of Highway 28, 67/175 South and Highway 28 South in the town of Theresa. 

The grain-filled semi was traveling westbound on Highway 28 south when it entered the intersection to make a left turn at a stop sign.  The pickup truck was traveling northbound on Highway 28, 67/175 South, which is uncontrolled. 

Dean Adelmeyer, 48, from Theresa was driving the tractor-trailer. He was treated and released from the hospital for minor injuries. 

The pickup truck driver was Todd Henke, a 56-year-old man from Fond du Lac.  He was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and was flown to a trauma center with serious, but likely non-life-threatening injuries, Sheriff Dale Schmidt said.

Henke was arrested for a fifth-offense felony for driving with a blood alcohol level that is over the legal limit. 

The Dodge County Sheriff's Office is investigating the crash.
