Lydiksen, Donald (? - 16 July 1954) Donald Lydiksen, 37, Riplinger, was killed Saturday at 1:40 p.m. when the pick-up truck in which he was riding collided with another car near Stratford.  Fred Krummelbein, driver of the truck, and George Kohel, Stratford, driver of the other car, were unhurt.


Lydiksen died a short time after he was hurled from the truck, a skull fracture being the probable cause of his death.


Kohel has been charged with reckless driving and ordered to appear in Marathon County Court at Wausau, July 28.
