On January 24, 2022 at 5:22 a.m., the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office received a report of a two vehicle semi vs. car traffic crash on STH 70 one mile west of the intersection of CTH EE in the Town of Draper.  Sawyer County Deputies, Sawyer County EMS, and Wisconsin State Patrol, along with Draper, Winter, and Radisson Fire Departments, responded.

A preliminary investigation indicates a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze, operated by William J. Bohn, 35, from Rib Lake, was traveling westbound on STH 70.  The Chevrolet Cruze crossed the center line and collided head-on with an eastbound semi-tractor/trailer operated by Marvin R. Zacharias, 62, from Hayward.  Mr. Bohn received fatal injuries from the crash and was the only occupant in the vehicle.  Mr. Zacharias received very minor injuries.

This traffic crash remains under investigation by the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office, Wisconsin State Patrol, and Sawyer County Coroner's Office.
