Victim in fatal car accident identified


ONALASKA, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- The Wisconsin State Patrol says alcohol could be a factor in a crash on I-90 that killed a 69-year old man from Onalaska on Friday afternoon.  

According to the State Patrol, Thomas L. Clark was killed after his vehicle was rear ended.

It happened about 4 p.m. Friday in the eastbound lanes of I-90 near the Onalaska exits. 

A State Patrol release says Clark was slowing in the right lane when the other vehicle hit him from behind.

The driver of that second car was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

The State Patrol release indicates their investigation is looking at whether the second driver was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.
