- Police confirmed Thursday what many suspected: heroin use led directly to the crash that killed a man and severely injured a boy in Wausau last month.
24-year-old Michael Dixon died March 23rd when his car crashed into a bridge support on Thomas Street.
Police found an uncapped syringe, spoon and a lighter in the car. They were waiting on toxicology tests to determine if Dixon was high on heroin at the time of the crash. They also think speed played a factor.
Dixon's 4-year-old son was in the car and severely injured.
A Facebook page dedicated to the boy says he had brain surgery and is still recovering.
We'll have a link to that Facebook page below.
