Wisconsin man driving pickup struck by plane dies

LEDGEVIEW, Wis. (AP) — A second person has died after a small plane collided with a pickup truck near a private airfield in eastern Wisconsin last week.

WLUK-TV reports the Brown County medical examiner's office confirms 51-year-old Patrick Schounard of Greenleaf died Sunday.

Schounard was driving the pickup. The pilot, John Fiddelke of De Pere, died at the scene.

Authorities say the fixed-wing, single-engine plane was coming in for a landing in Ledgeview on Thursday afternoon when it struck the pickup, which was traveling west on a Brown County highway.

The National Transportation Safety Board is expected to release a preliminary crash report later this week.
