Dorchester Woman (Dies in Crash - 2016)

One person is dead due to the injuries she received nine days earlier when the vehicle she was riding in was struck by a semi on STH 29 at CTH P in the Township of Green Grove.

The Clark County Sheriff’s office received a 911 call of the crash at about 8:39 a.m., on Thursday February 4, 2016. Initial investigation indicates a vehicle driven by Roy Meyer, 86 years old, was southbound on Pray Ave. and crossed STH 29. A semi, driven by Roger Tischendorf, 54 years old, was east bound when he saw the vehicle cross the westbound traffic and enter the eastbound lanes. Roger was unable to avoid the collision and struck the southbound vehicle.

The passenger of the minivan, Marilyn Meyer, 78 years old, was extricated from the vehicle and transported to the St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield by the Spirit Air Helicopter. Marilyn did from her injuries on Saturday February 13, 2016 at about 1:50 p.m. Roy was transported to the Marshfield hospital by the Abbotsford ambulance.

Alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the accident. Roy and Marilyn were not wearing their seatbelts and are from the rural Dorchester area. Roger was wearing his seatbelt, and is also from rural Dorchester and was uninjured.

The Owen-Withee-Curtiss Fire and Ambulance Service responded to the scene with the Curtiss First Responders, Clark County Sheriff’s Office Abbotsford.
