Dodge County Sheriff’s Office IDs Injured Motorists In Highway 151 Collision

(Trenton) Authorities have identified the motorist flown from the scene of a two-vehicle crash Thursday evening in the Town of Trenton. The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office says the condition of Michael Beckwith has improved though his exact condition is not known. The 66-year-old Neosho man sustained life-threatening injuries during the collision on Highway 151 near County Highway C between Beaver Dam and Waupun. We are learning now that Beckwith’s car had been pulled over to the right shoulder of the northbound lanes when he re-entered the roadway in what is believed to be an attempt to enter a crossover to the southbound side.  That crossover is in place for access to a residence on the divided highway and is not posted to prohibit U-turns. Two occupants of a northbound pickup are being identified as 58-year-old David Neitzke and 58-year-old Renee Neitzke, both of Omro. Neither sustained injuries that required transport. Authorities note that while there are several residential crossovers on Highway 151 in Dodge County, conducting U-turns in the crossovers can be very dangerous. Extreme care is advised to ensure any traffic with the right-of-way is allowed to safely pass before entering or crossing the highway.
