Police ID Rhinelander Man Killed in Woodruff Crash

The Woodruff Police Department has released the name of a Rhinelander man killed in a car accident Thursday.

Woodruff Police Detective Clayton Kreitlow says 23 year-old David W. Brown, of Rhinelander, was a passenger in a northbound cargo van on Highway 47 shortly before 12:30 p.m. Thursday. Police say a minivan driven by 83 year-old Dorthy Herman, of Harshaw, struck a deer while traveling south on the highway, throwing the deer into the air. The deer crashed through the windshield of the cargo van in which Brown was riding.

The van was being driven by 21 year-old Kevin Theisen, of Rhinelander.

Brown was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

Theisen was transported to Howard Young Medical Center following the crash, where he was treated and released.
