No other vehicles were involved. Both drivers were the only vehicle occupants.

The Silverado was driven by a 28-year-old Green Bay area man who released with no noted injury.

The Equinox was driven by a 74-year-old man from New Holstein who was transported from the scene in critical condition and was shortly thereafter pronounced deceased at an area

hospital.

Names are being withheld at this time pending family notification.
