A Wisconsin man who ran a stop sign and crashed following a brief police chase died two weeks after the incident occurred.
The New Richmond, Wisconsin, police department had initially tried to pull over 20-year-old Logan Zappa around 3:25 a.m. on Aug. 1 because it had the wrong license plates, according to the St. Croix County Sheriff's Office.
Zappa, authorities said, sped off on CTH T, with officers giving chase for about five minutes before ultimately stopping and turning back near 200th Avenue.
Shortly after, the sheriff's office responded to a call about a two-vehicle crash at CTH T and CTH H. There, deputies found Zappa in a crashed Pontiac Grand Prix. According to the sheriff's office, he ran a stop sign while heading north on CTH T and was hit by a westbound driver in a pickup truck, which had the right of way.
Zappa had to be extricated from the car, and was transported to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with serious injuries. The driver of the pickup was treated at the crash scene and released.
On Tuesday, the sheriff's office said Zappa, of Deer Park, Wisconsin, died on Aug. 14 as a result of injuries he suffered in the wreck.
