The Brown County Sheriff’s Office reports that a construction worker was the victim of the deadly crash in Ledgeview Monday morning.

Deputies say they were dispatched to a two-vehicle crash on County Highway G, just east of Scray’s Hill Road in front of Ledgeview Golf Course.

A pick-up truck driven by a Kiel area man was driving eastbound on CTH-G when it struck the back of a low-boy trailer that was stopped on the side of the road to off-load a bulldozer.

The pick-up then spun around and flipped.

Officials say the driver of the pick-up was ejected onto the roadway and the De Pere area man off-loading the bulldozer was struck during the crash.

The driver of the pick-up was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The man who was off-loading the bulldozer was pronounced dead at the scene.

The cause of the crash is unknown at this time.

The Brown County Sheriff’s Office reconstruction unit is on scene. Names are being withheld pending notification of relatives.
