UPDATE: Harshaw man killed in car, semi-truck crash



TOMAHAWK (WAOW) – The Oneida County Sheriff's Department says a Harshaw man was killed Thursday when the car he was driving collided with a semi-truck on U.S. Highway 51 north of Tomahawk.

Jason Smoker, 42, died in the crash, the agency said Friday.

Sheriff Grady Hartman said the crash happened just minutes after a 911 call reported a reckless driver northbound on the highway.

Another 911 call four minutes later at 2:02 p.m. reported the crash about three miles north of U.S. Highway 8, the sheriff said in a statement.

Hartman said the investigation indicates the automobile crossed over the center line and struck the semi's trailer.

The driver of the car was alone, the sheriff said.
