One Dead And Three Injured In Vehicle-Camper Rollover

Township of Wittenberg, Wisconsin – Authorities reported a 56-year-old Greenville man passed away from injuries sustained in a car accident on August 20, 2021. The Shawano County Sheriff’s Office was notified of the accident along State Highway 45 and State Highway 29 around 4:40 p.m.

The deceased was pulling a camper along Highway 29 when he lost control of the vehicle due to the camper’s rear tire blowing out. Reports indicate the vehicle rolled, causing both the camper and vehicle to catch fire.

Bystanders were able to remove a woman and two-young boys from the inflamed vehicle. The three victims were airlifted to local hospitals with burns and other injuries.

The driver of the vehicle passed away at the scene of the accident.


This loss of life appears to have been initiated by a tire failure which then led to a crash and a post collision fuel-fed fire. These types of tragedies occur all too often on our highways. In my Tire Defect Litigation book, I describe the type of defects that can cause a tire failure.

Unfortunately, when a camper tire fails, loss of control often follows. I am deeply saddened to learn of another family's life forever changed by this type of sudden and unexpected tragedy.
