Second person dies after crash near Vesper


MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAU) -- A second person has died from a Wood County traffic accident that happened a week ago.

The crash on August 6th instantly killed 96-year-old Ruth Ruder, who was a passenger in a car driven by 80-year-old Linda Knapp. Wood County investigators say they were notified by St. Joseph’s Hospital officials that Knapp passed away from her injuries Wednesday morning.

The crash involved a car and a pickup pulling a trailer at the intersection of county highways C and F near Vesper. 43-year-old Phillip Vruwink was the other driver. He received minor injuries.
