MENOMONIE, Wis. — A semi driver has pleaded guilty to a felony charge in a fatal interstate crash that killed another truck driver in Dunn County.

Twenty-three-year-old Destry Wilson, of Great Lakes, Ill., entered the plea to homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle as part of an agreement with prosecutors. Four other charges were dismissed.

Authorities say Wilson had parked his semi along Interstate 94 without proper lighting last July. A semi driven by 43-year-old Brian Paglusch of Paynesville, Minn., struck the parked semi and became engulfed in flames. An autopsy determined Paglusch died as a result of the fire, not the crash.

The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram says Dunn County District Attorney James Peterson will ask for no more than six months in jail as a condition of probation.
