A grieving mother is devastated after her son who was killed in an accident on the way back from a work trip.
26-year-old Clenton Hall of Milwaukee was one of three local accountants who lost their lives in Dane County on Wednesday night. Hall’s girlfriend Katey Pasqualini of Milwaukee and coworker Kim Radtke of Milwaukee were killed in the same vehicle.
"I don't know what I'm going to do without him," said Martha Hall. "I just wish I could wake up and this could not be real."
Clenton Hall was traveling back to Milwaukee from a recruiting trip with RitzHolman accounting firm.
"They were just coming home from Lacrosse," Hall said.
Hall and three others were struck by a wrong-way driver on I-94 near Deerfield. Wisconsin State Patrol said alcohol use is suspected to be a factor in the accident.
"I was furious because him and his friends were always very responsible," said Hall.
Hall said the tragedy is even more difficult given Hall’s girlfriend of a year lost her life next to him.
"They were inseparable together all the time," said Hall. "I know that was going to be the one."
Hall is left holding onto the pictures and memories of a professional accountant, football star, a man with many friends and a smile that stole her heart.
"He had so much going for him,” she said. “Now I'll never be a grandmother and I wanted to so bad."
Hall wants her son's tragedy to be a reminder to never get behind the wheel if you've had too much to drink. She's sending prayers to Hall's supervisor, Brian Falk of Whitefish Bay, who survived the wreck but is suffering from serious injuries. The driver of the wrong way vehicle was killed in the wreck.
