WI Teen to be Charged with Fatal Crash from 2015

MOSINEE, Wis. (WSAW)-- An 18-year-old is expected to be charged later this month with the traffic death of a Mosinee man.

Court records show Brandon Kohel, also of Mosinee, will be charged with first degree reckless homicide and two counts of first degree reckless injury.

Investigators said Michael M. Sybeldon was killed and three other were injured in a two-vehicle crash on Highway KK near Mosinee on Aug. 11, 2015. The crash was reported around 1:55 p.m. just past Half Moon Lake Road.

According to court documents, based on witness statements, Kohel attempted to pass a vehicle in a no-passing zone. Investigators said Kohel was traveling at 63 m.p.h. heading into a curve.

Investigators report Kohel swerved to avoid a head-on collision with an oncoming vehicle. Sybeldon also swerved when he saw Kohel's vehicle. Both vehicles collided on the shoulder.

One of Kohel's passengers were seriously injured and had to have pins placed in broken bones along with mesh in her back due to it being broken.

Kohel has not been arrested and is expected to be charged July 28.
