38-year-old, Jay M. Shipla, was driving westbound on County X in the Town of Wagner about a half-mile west of Philipps Road at about 3:45pm Saturday, July 3rd. The cycle failed to negotiate a curve, went off road to the right and impacted a tree. The operator was not wearing a helmet and was alone. The Wagner Fire Department and the Bay Area Paramedics assisted the Sherriff’s Department at the scene. Shipla later passed away at a Green Bay hospital of head injuries. This crash remains under investigation by the Sherriff’s Office and the medical examiner. This is the fourth traffic fatality in Marinette County this year.
