Wabeno man likely died in car fire after hitting tree

by

TOWNSEND, WI (WTAQ) - A 46-year-old Wabeno man likely died from the fire that completely engulfed his car after crashing in Oconto County early Tuesday morning. 

At 3:08 a.m., Oconto Co. Sheriff’s got a call about an unoccupied single vehicle fire along Highway 32 just north of Townsend. 

The Townsend Fire Department arrived and put out the fire and found Peter Pemma Jr. in the driver’s seat.  Deputy Troy Sherman says the Pemma veered off the road during a curve and smashed into a tree.

Sherman says an autopsy needs to be performed still, but says the crash was not severe to cause death and Pemma likely died from the fire. 

Sherman says they are looking into whether alcohol was involved in the crash.
