"Always willing to give that extra hand:" Good Samaritan killed by drunk driver in Delafield remembered

NOW: “Always willing to give that extra hand:“ Good Samaritan killed by drunk driver in Delafield remembered

An Oconomowoc man is facing a long list of charges after, police say, he hit and killed a good Samaritan. Frank Schiller, 37, is behind bars charged in the death of Peter Enns of Canada. Enns was helping change a tire on the side of I-94 when, police say, Schiller slammed into him. Court records say he was going an estimated 75 miles per hour.

Enns was headed to Indiana to pick something up and bring it back to Canada. It's the job he'd done for five years, to help provide for his wife and three kids.

"Always willing to give that extra hand wherever needed, and certainly the case on Saturday night when he was struck," said Jeremy Twordik, owner of Roadex Services, LTD.

Twordik was one of the first people to be told about the violent crash, and then the heartbreaking news. There are things that don't make sense to him about this, like why did it have to happen to such a giving person.

"He (Enns), last year, had taken a month away from work to go to Mexico to actually help build and put together a school down there," Twordik said.

The criminal complaint spells out the horrific end to Enns's life. He was underneath the family's van, trying to take the spare tire off the underside when Frank Schiller weaved through traffic and hit the van going interstate speed. Enns was found in the middle of the road, the van, with four kids inside, went into a ditch. Schiller was later arrested, and charged with another OWI offense.

"Why is an individual like this, who was arrested for the fifth time just in March, out and able to be behind the wheel of a vehicle," Twordik said.

The criminal complaint mentions Schiller getting into a family argument about his drug use, and him speeding away just before the crash. A crash that killed a man, leaving a void with his family.

"You know, we're rallying around them to try to help give back to one that was always giving," Twordik added.
