Driver pleads guilty in Wisconsin interstate fatal crash

The driver of a semi truck that struck another semi and killed its driver in Dunn County recently pleaded guilty to a felony charge.

As part of an agreement with prosecutors, 23-year-old Destry Wilson entered the plea to homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle. According to reports last July, Wilson parked his semi on interstate 94 but didn’t use the appropriate lighting. Thus, another semi, driven by Brian Paglusch, 43, struck the parked semi, causing it to catch on fire. According to an autopsy report, Paglusch died in the fire.

As a condition of probation, Dunn County District Attorney James Peterson will ask for six months or less in jail.
