The 35-year-old Cedar Grove man killed in a two-vehicle accident east of Fond du Lac on Thursday morning was a guidance counselor at the Fond du Lac High School.
Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Sergeant Paul Rottscholl said they got a call at 7:26 a.m. about an accident on State Highway 23 near Hilltop Drive.
A preliminary investigation found Matt Heinen was driving a west bound vehicle lost control and slid into the eastbound lane causing an accident.
Rottscholl said weather conditions at the time of the mishap may have been a factor. He said deputies arriving on the scene reported there was low visibility due to heavy snow and fog and road conditions were slippery.
Heinen died at the scene and the other driver, a 37-year-old Mt. Calvary man, was taken to St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac with non-life threatening injuries.
