Driver Arrested in Fatal Sheboygan Drunk Driving Accident

A man from Adell is expected to appear in court Tuesday in connection with a fatal Sheboygan drunk driving accident over the weekend.

According to Sheboygan County Court documents, 59 year-old Russel Peters has been held in the county jail since his arrest at the scene of an auto accident Saturday afternoon. Peters was allegedly drunk when his pickup truck crossed the centerline on highway 28 southwest of the village of Cascade shortly after 4:00 p.m. and collided head-on with another vehicle.

The driver of the other vehicle, 68 year-old Darwin Hoefert, of Naples, Florida, was instantly killed in the accident. Two dogs riding with Hoefert were injured in the crash, one of which had to be euthanized.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family and friends during this difficult time.
