Youth Falls From Car, Dies


The death of a 17-year-old Sheboygan boy who suffered head injuries when he fell from a car at South 16th Street and Riverdale early Sunday morning has been ruled accidental and a traffic fatality.

A ruling in the death of Roger Alan Gartman, of 2001 S. 13th St., was issued today by Sheboygan County Coroner Robert Sertich Jr.

Sertich said blood tests revealed that the youth had not consumed alcohol. Further blood tests to check for other substances are being done at a Madison laboratory, Sertich said.

Few details of the incident were available today from the Sheboygan County Sheriff's Department, which is continuing its investigation.

Authorities did say that Gartman had jumped onto the trunk of a car driven by Vicki L. Meggars, of 1633 Riverdale Ave., apparently while the car was parked on the driveway of a residence.

He then fell off the vehicle as it was traveling along the street, after it had left the driveway, striking his head on the pavement.

At 12:07 a.m., the sheriff's department was notified of a person lying on the roadway.

The youth was taken to St. Nicholas Hospital by Orange Cross ambulance, then to Froedtert Memorial Hospital in Milwaukee by a Flight for Life helicopter. He died there at 12:15 p.m. Sunday.

Deputy Inspector Robert Thurman of the Sheboygan County Sheriff's Department said he hoped the investigation would develop more information concerning the incident.

But as of this morning, according to Thurman, "how he got onto the car and why he fell remains under investigation."

Gartman is the 11th person to die in a Sheboygan County traffic mishap so far this year, compared to 12 on this date in 1984.

Roger was born March 21, 1968, in Sheboygan, a son of Richard and Susan Muehlbauer Gartman.

He attended Franklin and St. Peter Claver Catholic Schools and was to have been a senior at South High School this fall, where he was a member of the football team.

He was a part-time employee at Jake's Liquor Store and was a member of St. Peter Claver Catholic Church and its 1985 confirmation class, Catholic Youth Organization and Boy Scout Troop 3816.

Surviving are his parents, of Sheboygan; three brothers, Charlie, Paul and Philip, all at home; two sisters, Alissa and Rachel, both at home; and his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Michael L. Hess.

A funeral Mass will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday at St. Peter Claver Church, with the Revs. David Braun, pastor, Dennis Witz, assistant pastor, Patrick Heppe, Milwaukee, a former assistant pastor of St. Peter Claver, and Deacon Peter Burns of St. Peter Claver, concelebrants.

Family rites will be held at Ramm-Ziegler Funeral Home at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Burial will be at Lutheran Cemetery.

Friends may call at the funeral home after 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and until the time of services Wednesday.

A memorial fund has been established in Roger Alan Gartman's name.
