Semi-Truck Accident Injures 5 in Fond Du Lac, WI on Highway 23, Including Daniel Jury and Gerald Head

Fond du Lac, WI — A truck driver in the Fond du Lac area got into an accident along Highway 23 several miles east of Fond du Lac and injured five people. This accident happened on Wednesday, July 15, and the injured were identified as Lisa Head, Mary Head, 72, Gerald Head, 74, Daniel Jury, 57, and Christine Jury, 65.

All five people were hurt after their cars were hit by Randy Miles’ semi-truck, who apparently lost control while driving and veered into the opposite lanes of traffic.

This happened at about 11:00 a.m. on Highway 23, about 5 miles east of town. The Jurys and the Heads were driving east in separate cars that morning while Miles was driving west in his semi-truck.

For unknown reasons, Miles lost control of his truck and swerved into oncoming traffic, where he crashed into the Jury’s car first, then the Head’s car. The impact sent the Head’s car off the road and into a nearby ditch, where it overturned multiple times.

Gerald Head, a passenger in that car, was ejected and seriously injured while Lisa and Mary Head were trapped inside. Paramedics were called and transported all five to the hospital, with Gerald Head being the most seriously hurt.

The truck driver, Randy Miles, wasn’t injured at all. The cause of this accident is still being investigated.

I’d really like to know who this truck driver worked for because I think they’re going to have to answer for their driver here — and a few other things. While doing some research into this accident, I located some records that I think belong to this truck driver. Before I share this information, I want to be clear that it’s possible I found records for someone from the same town with the same name, age, etc, though these records appear to match this driver.

It looks like this truck driver has a pretty extensive criminal record with the State of Wisconsin and with the State of California, dating back through the past 20 years or so. Now, I don’t want to get into specifics here, but let’s just say that if I were running a trucking company, this is literally the last person I’d hire.

Was this driver even qualified to be behind the wheel of a commercial truck? Who hired him? Did they check his background?

There are a lot of unanswered questions here and I don’t see the news or the police addressing any of them, except maybe why the trucker lost control in the first place. That’s important information, don’t get me wrong, but what I found here might point to something bigger and shed a little more light on what was going on behind the scenes.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
