Darrell Pantazes, 51, of Skokie, Ill., died when his car crashed into another vehicle, mowed down a light pole and then hit a building on University Avenue.
In a second accident this past weekend, Brandon Cooper, 21, of Stroughton, Wis., was killed when he went off the road and hit a tree in Dunn.
Cooper was dead at the scene of his accident, while Pantazes was pronounced dead at the University of Wisconsin Emergency Room.
Authorities blamed alcohol for playing a part in the two unrelated fatal crashes.
In a press release, the University of Wisconsin-Madison police department said that it tried to stop Pantazes’s car at just after midnight Sunday when they spotted him driving the wrong way on W. Johnson Street.
But Pantazes kept going, still moving in the wrong direction, when it hit a light pole and then flew up, crashing into a building.
