Report on Fatal Accident Released

The Door County Sheriff’s Department has released the accident report of a fatal crash that took the life of an 82-year old Sturgeon Bay man and injured a local woman Friday morning. The collision occurred on Highway 42/57, near County BB (Gordon Road), in the Town of Sevastopol. Raymond Hogan was pronounced dead at the scene. Twenty six year old Krystyn Beilfus of Sturgeon Bay was transported to Ministry Door County Medical Center for treatment of multiple injuries. According to the accident report, Hogan stopped at the stop sign at BB and the highway and turned left into the path of the southbound Beilfuss vehicle. Her car rolled forward after striking Hogan’s vehicle on the drivers side. Both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles. A witness told the investigating officer that Hogan’s vision may have been obscured by a non-contact vehicle in the right turn lane of southbound Highway 42/57. However, the officer was unable to confirm the account. So far this year, Door County has recorded three traffic fatalities.
