Man involved in side-by-side accident dies from injuries

MARINETTE, Wisc. — A Green Bay man has passed away after being injured in a UTV accident late last month.

Marinette County Sheriff Jerry Sauve says James P. Perrigoue, 57 of Green Bay, passed away in a Green Bay hospital Sunday from injuries sustained during an accident on July 23rd, 2016. Perrigoue was a passenger in a two-seat side-by-side UTV that went off the road and overturned on Fabian Lane near Boat Landing 13 Road in the town of Stephenson, Wisconsin. Perrigoue was ejected in the accident.

His son, Ryan Perrigoue, 29, was driving the UTV at the time of the accident. He was treated and released for non-life threatening injuries. Sheriff Sauve says alcohol and speed are believed to be factors in the crash, which remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office, County Coroner, and Wisconsin DNR Wardens.
