Clenton Hall, Katey Pasqualini, Kim Radtke and Patrick Wasielewski were killed by a repeat drunk driver the night of November 2, 2016 on Interstate 94 in Wisconsin. Brian Falk, the driver of the vehicle they were in miraculously survived.
Clenton, Katey, Kim and Brian worked for RitzHolman CPAs in Milwaukee. They were heading back to Milwaukee after giving a presentation at UW LaCrosse. A vehicle driving the wrong way on Interstate 94 at 93 mph hit them head on. Brian had no time to react. Patrick's vehicle was also involved in the crash. All four died instantly. It’s a miracle that Brian survived.
The drunk driver, Brysen Wills, also survived and now faces 15 felony counts. At this time, he is not competent to be charged. We'll wait as long as we have to for him to be competent to get convicted of his senseless actions that took four lives.
Clenton and Katey were more than just co-workers. They were in love and looking forward to a bright future together.
To honor these bright young individuals who lost their lives from the senseless actions of one man that chose to drink and drive that night, Marla Hall, Clenton’s mother, and Caralee Butzine, Clenton’s aunt, founded Eliminate Drunk Driving, Inc., a non-profit organization to help bring awareness to our lax OWI laws in our state, lobby for harsher penalties and educate our youth and others on the importance of not drinking and driving.
Please join us on our journey as we advocate for change in the state of Wisconsin. Drunk driving is 100% preventable and the numbers of repeat offenders on our roads are staggering.
We can’t do it alone. We ask for your help. These repeat offenders are putting our family's lives at risk every day on our roads.
It’s time to act.
