The Marinette County Sheriff’s Office said the fatal crash happened at Newton Lake Road and County Highway X. Deputies responded to the scene at around 4:03 p.m.
According to officials, a 48-year-old Crivitz resident was driving northbound on Newton Lake Road when he approached a stop sign at County Highway X and stopped. He then entered the intersection, where his vehicle collided with another vehicle driven by a 29-year-old Crivitz resident.
