A 19-year-old man from Oconto Falls was killed in a two-vehicle crash in the town of Washington early Friday, according to the Shawano County Sheriff’s Department.

The crash took place on state Highway 22 at Resort Road just before 2:30 a.m.

The preliminary investigation showed a southbound vehicle driven by Devin Michaud crossed the center line and collided with a northbound milk truck. Michaud passed away from the injuries he sustained in the crash, the sheriff’s department said.

The northbound vehicle was driven by a 63-year-old Marion man who was not injured.

Authorities said Michaud was on his way to work and either fell asleep or became inattentive at the wheel. No alcohol was believed to be involved.

The Shawano County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Shawano Ambulance Service, Cecil-Washington Fire Department and the Shawano County Highway Department.
