GREEN BAY – A 17-year old Wayside boy, Devon Robley, was arrested by the Brown County Sheriff’s Department on felony drunk driving charges after a crash Monday night that killed a passenger in his pickup truck and a passenger in another vehicle.

Robley is a student at Reedsville High School, as was 16-year old Simon Hill, who died when he was ejected from Robley’s truck. The other person killed was 32-year old Laurie Shaha of De Pere, a passenger in a SUV.

The funeral for Hill will be held in Wayside on Saturday, July 16. Friends may call at Zion Lutheran Church in Wayside from 4 to 9 p.m. on Friday July 15, 2016. Visitation will continue after 10 a.m. Saturday at the church until the funeral service at 11 a.m. with Pastor Austen Welter officiating.

Hansen Funeral Services of Green Bay is handling funeral arrangements for Laurie Ann Shaha. They are not finalized yet.

Robley is held in the Brown County Jail on $20,000 bond, and allegedly told sheriff’s deputies he was smoking marijuana just prior to the crash, at Fonferek County Park.

The Brown County Board’s Education and Recreation Committee and its Public Safety Committee have been discussing drug use problems at Fonferek Park for several months. The park is located just a few miles north of the fatal crash scene, and Robley was headed south on Glenmore Road when the crash took place. He was reportedly going 70 miles per hour when his truck T-boned the SUV.

Robley’s truck failed to stop for a stop sign at Glenmore Road and Brown County X, and struck the SUV. Shaha’s mother was driving the SUV and was seriously injured.

Robley and a 20-year old man from Wayside, a passenger in the Robley vehicle, had minor injuries.
