Fatal Crash on I-90



Bookmark and Share

A Wisconsin man died in a one-vehicle crash on Interstate 90 just east of Plankinton on Sunday, Jan. 20.
 
Maurice D Hampton, 36, of Milwaukee, was a passenger in a 2007 Volvo semi with trailer that was westbound on I-90. The vehicle was hauling general freight from Illinois, with a first stop scheduled in Wyoming. Strong wind pushed the vehicle to the shoulder on the median side of the interstate. The driver, Paul Melvin Mathews, 58, of Dallas, N.C. tried to correct, and the vehicle spun into the north ditch and rolled, coming to rest on its top.
 
Mathews was wearing a seatbelt and suffered minor injuries. Hampton was in the sleeper bunk and was thrown out the back. He died at the scene.
 
The vehicle struck an electrical power pole, and power lines fell onto the driving lanes. A portion of the interstate was closed and traffic re-routed for a period of time. Power was out for a time for several area communities.
