The Wyoming Police Chief was killed in a 2-vehicle wreck on Friday. William "Bill" Bauer, 36, was pronounced dead at the scene near the intersection of County Road 250 East and Camp Grove Road just before noon, according to Marshall County Coroner Dave Lenz. The crash happened about two miles east of Camp Grove. Police say the driver of a southbound car, Stacey Heinz, 32, of Wyoming, Illinois had stopped at the stop sign and proceeded through the intersection and apparently didn't see Bauer's car approaching from the west. Bauer's car struck Heinz' car, pushing it into a ditch, rolling one time. Heinz and two small children were taken to the hospital. Heinz was in good condition while the children were treated and released. Bauer was enroute to the Illinois Valley Crime Commission executive board's luncheon in Hennepin at the time of the crash. He was in his uniform, but he was not driving his squad car, Lenz said. The crash remains under investigation.
