Wisconsin man dies from injuries

Tuesday, November 27, 2001

SIKESTON -- A Wisconsin man died as a result of

injuries he received after being struck by a car

Saturday night on the south side of Sikeston.

According to authorities, the accident occurred just

before 6 p.m. Saturday when Juletta Cornell of Marston

was driving northbound on Highway 61.

Cornell's vehicle, which was in the outside lane, was

approaching the intersection of Henning Drive when a

pedestrian, Raymond A. Sorenson, 77, of Stoddard,

Wis., appeared walking westbound across northbound

traffic.

Cornell, who was traveling at approximately 40 mph had

the green light but applied her brakes when she saw

Sorenson walking at a fast pace. However, she was

unable to stop and her vehicle hit Sorenson.

Sorenson was flown to St. Francis Medical Center and

later transported to Barnes Hospital in St. Louis. He

died early Sunday of massive body trauma received in

the accident.
