Deputy Kory Dahlvig was killed in an automobile crash while responding to a mutual aid call from the Lac du Flambeau Tribal Police Department.

As he responded on Highway 47, the driver of a dump truck parked on the side of the road entered the roadway, causing Deputy Dahlvig to strike the back of it.

The dump truck's driver was arrested and charged with vehicular murder and DUI. On June 4, 2010, he pleaded guilty to DUI, defective tail lights, and reckless driving. He was fined 1,669 dollars and had his drivers license suspended for six months. The vehicular murder charge was dismissed.
