FOND DU LAC, Wis. (WFRV) – Fond du Lac Police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred over the weekend.

Authorities say they responded to a report of a car striking a moped at the intersection of South Pioneer Road and Forest Avenue shortly before 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26.

Officers arriving on the scene found the operator of the moped – 62-year-old Thomas Norton – with life-threatening injuries.

Norton was transported to the Fond du Lac County Airport by Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue where the ThedaStar Helicopter transported him to Neenah in critical condition.

Norton was then struck by a Studebaker driven by a 74-year-old North Fond du Lac man, who was not injured.
