Rhinelander Man, 51, and Family Dog Die in Tragic Two-Vehicle Accident on U.S. 51 Sunday Evening in Lincoln County – Obituary and Death Notice.

A devastating two-vehicle collision on U.S. 51 in Lincoln County on Sunday evening has claimed the life of a 51-year-old Rhinelander man and his dog. The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office received multiple 911 calls at 10:55 p.m. reporting the accident, which occurred just north of Tamarack Lane in the town of Skanawan, approximately 40 miles north of Wausau.

Upon arrival, deputies found a 20-year-old Crandon woman trapped inside an overturned SUV and the Rhinelander man confined to a utility van. The preliminary investigation suggests that the SUV, driven by the young woman, lost control and crossed the median, colliding with the van driven by the Rhinelander man. The woman was extricated from her vehicle by emergency personnel and airlifted to Aspirus Wausau Hospital for treatment, while the Rhinelander man was pronounced deceased at the scene. Tragically, a dog in the SUV also perished in the accident.

The accident caused a significant disruption to traffic, with US 51 being diverted for nearly eight hours. The Wisconsin State Patrol was contacted to conduct a reconstruction report on the incident, which is currently under investigation. The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is working to determine the cause of the accident and is urging anyone with information to come forward.

The Rhinelander man’s identity has not been released pending notification of his family members. His death has sent shockwaves through the community, and he will be deeply missed by his loved ones and all those who knew him. The young woman’s condition is unknown at this time, and her family has requested privacy during this difficult time.

The accident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of road safety and the devastating consequences of accidents. The community is rallying around the families affected, offering support and condolences during this difficult time. As the investigation continues, the community is left to mourn the loss of a life taken far too soon.

The Rhinelander man’s legacy will live on through the memories of his loved ones, and his community will never forget his kindness and compassion. His death is a tragic reminder of the fragility of life and the importance of cherishing every moment with our loved ones.

In the face of tragedy, the community is coming together to support the families affected and to celebrate the life of the Rhinelander man. His memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew him, and his legacy will continue to inspire and uplift all those who were fortunate enough to have known him.

Rest in peace, Rhinelander man. Your memory will be deeply missed, but your legacy will live on in our hearts.

The investigation into the accident is ongoing, and the community is urged to come forward with any information that may assist in determining the cause of the accident.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is committed to ensuring that justice is served and that the families affected receive the support they need during this difficult time.
