Town of Delmar (Accident - 2013)
The Chippewa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a single-vehicle traffic crash that resulted in a fatality of the driver and only occupant of the vehicle.
At 12:49 a.m. on Friday, July 26, 2013, the Sheriff’s Office was notified of a traffic crash that occurred on County highway D north of County Highway O in the Town of Delmar.
A Chevy Impala was traveling south on County Highway D at a high rate of speed when the vehicle left the road, striking a driveway embankment, sending the vehicle airborne where it struck a large oak tree. Vehicle parts and paint transfer were noted 15 feet up the side of the tree. The operator of the vehicle, Peter Ballard, 43, of Withee, Wisconsin, was located in the back seat of the severely damaged vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Chippewa County Coroner.
