According to authorities, Mr. True was heading east on Hampton when his vehicle was struck by a Cadillac traveling southeast on Fond du Lac. Police suspect that the driver of the Cadillac was drunk at the time of the accident, and it is reported that they arrested him for intoxicated use of a motor vehicle and causing great bodily harm.
