Jessica Knueppel, 43, of Fon du Lac was the driver of the Jeep SUV. She was brought to ThedaCare Berlin for treatment.

According to the crash report, Kneuppel looked like she was under the influence of medications, drugs, or alcohol. She was tested to see if her blood contains drugs or alcohol and authorities are still waiting for the results.

Another Crash Happened The Same Day

A press release from Green Lake County Crime Stoppers stated that just 10 minutes earlier on the same day, another crash transpired which involved a red or maroon SUV.

The driver of the red or maroon SUV apparently left his car to check damages but eventually fled the scene, the report said.

Ripon Press quoted Green Lake County Chief Deputy Matthew Vande Kolk saying, “We are attempting to identify the occupants of the red or maroon SUV as we believe they may have information pertaining to the fatal traffic crash investigation.”

Any person who has any information regarding the fatal crash can contact 920-294-4134 Ext. 1151 to speak to a detective or send an email scody@co.green-lake.wi.us.

Tipsters may also receive a cash reward for any information that can lead to any eyewitnesses.
