IRON MOUNTAIN - Authorities have identified the victims of fatal crashes on Friday in Negaunee Township and the town of Peshtigo, Wis.

Killed in the crash in Peshtigo was Nancy J. Rumohr, 62, of Munising. She was a passenger in a vehicle driven by her husband, Jack L. Rumohr, 64, who was listed in serious condition in a Green Bay hospital, said Marinette County Sheriff Jerry Sauve.

The driver of the other vehicle was Michael J. Baker, 31, of Peshtigo. Baker and two young boys in his vehicle escaped injury.

The accident, which occurred Friday afternoon, remains under investigation. According to an initial report, a northbound Chevrolet Blazer occupied by the Rumohrs was struck from behind by a sedan driven by Baker on U.S. 41 near Flame road. The Blazer went into the ditch and rolled over.

Anthony L. Eagle, 46, has been identified as the motorcycle operator killed after rear-ending a semi truck on U.S. 41 Friday morning in Negaunee Township.

According to the Marquette County Sheriff's Office, Eagle was traveling behind a semi truck driven by Robert J. Young, 56, of Escanaba, and owned by Upper Peninsula Concrete Pipe Co., also of Escanaba.

Eagle was unable to stop when the semi began to slow to make a left turn from the east-bound lane and collided with the back of the truck.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
