WI man's last kind act comforts grieving family

Posted:

GREEN BAY (WKOW) – A U.S. Army reservist who was killed while assisting victims in a minor Brown County car crash is being remembered as someone who put others first.

According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, 26-year-old Andrew Steiner died last week from injuries he sustained a week earlier.  His funeral on Friday featured a full military send-off.

Brown County authorities said Steiner and a friend came across a minor crash January 27 just after midnight.  As they checked on the vehicle occupants, another vehicle slammed into the wreckage, launching Steiner over an overpass.

Douglas Steiner of Howard, Andrew's father, said his son was doing what he always did, helping other people.  Douglas Steiner said what happened was horrifying but the family will always be proud of him.
