One person is dead after the car they were driving was involved in an accident on Romadka Ave. north of Wildwood Road in the Township of York.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 call of the crash at about 1:25 am, on Sunday March 19th, 2017.
Initial investigation indicates a Ford Taurus, being driven by David R. Vesel, 18 yrs. old, was northbound on Romadka Ave. when he lost control. The vehicle started to spin counter clockwise and entered the east ditch. It rolled over onto its top and struck a power pole. The car came to rest on its top facing a northeast direction.
Two passengers in the rear seat, Mitchell D. Mayville and Samuel H. Revier both 18 yrs. old, didn’t receive any injuries. One 16 yr. old passenger in the front seat received minor injuries and was taken to the Neillsville Memorial Medical Center. David was pronounced dead at the scene by Coroner Schleifer. Failure to have control appears to be a factor in the accident. Everyone in the vehicle was wearing seatbelts. David and Mitchell are from Greenwood and Samuel is from Willard.
The Granton Area Fire Department and First Responders responded to the scene with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Neillsville Area Ambulance Service and Coroner Schleifer. The Investigation is continuing by the Clark County Sheriff’s and Coroner’s Office.
This is the 2nd traffic fatality in Clark County for 2017.
