MANITOWOC (AP) – Two men killed when their vehicle rolled over and crashed into a tree and a house in Manitowoc County have been identified.

Sheriff’s officials say 29-year-old Justin Wieberdink, of Sheboygan, was driving a pickup truck on County Line Rd. in the Town of Meeme Tuesday when he lost control of the vehicle. The pickup veered into the ditch, overturned and then hit the tree and house.

A passenger, 26-year-old Jonathan Ingram, of Manitowoc, was also killed. They were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

WOMT reports a second passenger, a 29-year-old Sheboygan man, was taken by helicopter to Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah.
