Crash fatality was wanted by police
SHAWANO, Wis. (AP) – A Menasha man who was wanted in connection with a domestic disturbance has died after his speeding SUV slammed head-on into a semi-truck and burst into flames. Deputies say 35-year-old Keith L. Carpenter was pronounced dead at the scene. The collision happened Tuesday about 12:45 a.m. at Highway 29 in Shawano County. While deputies were investigating the crash, Menasha police were looking for Carpenter on a report of a domestic disturbance a few hours earlier. Witnesses say Carpenter’s SUV turned off its lights moments before slamming into the semi. The collision resulted in a large spill of diesel fuel. The SUV caught fire and burned until fire officials put it out. Highway 29 was closed for about six hours in both directions.
