Police authorities are investigating a car accident that happened at around 4:30 p.m. along the 2500 block of Washington Avenue on Sheboygan’s south side Tuesday, October 29 that caused the death of a female victim.
Fifty-six-year-old Kohler resident Michele Lilge was taken to the Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center by the Sheboygan Fire Department. Paramedics requested a Flight for Life helicopter to transport the victim to the hospital but later cancelled the ride.
Police officials have ruled out alcohol intoxication and speed as possible factors as to why the accident took place.
Washington Avenue’s westbound lanes were temporarily closed to traffic as police cleared the accident area.
The Sheboygan Police Department is encouraging anyone with information regarding the matter to get in touch with them at (920) 459-3333.
