WAUPACA, Wis. — In a story Sept. 2 about a fatal traffic accident in Waupaca County, The Associated Press erroneously reported the hometown of James Wall, who died in the crash. Wall was from Orland Park, Ill., not Orchard Park.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Waupaca authorities ID man thrown from boat
Waupaca County authorities identify Illinois man, 41, killed after thrown from boat on road
