Icy Accident Leaves Father Dead After Assisting Daughter


A New Berlin man is dead following a freak accident along an icy stretch of road near Springfield.

 

The sheriff’s department says 61-year-old Richard Wiley had gone to the intersection of Old Jacksonville Road and New Salem Church Road to assist his teenage daughter, who slid into a ditch after hitting an icy patch.

 

As he stood near her car, another vehicle also hit the ice and slid into the ditch, striking him.

 

Wiley was pronounced dead a short time later at Memorial Medical Center. No citations have been issued yet, but the accident is still under investigation.
