The Daviess County Sheriff’s Office reports Deetz, 46, of Vincennes was driving a 2008 Yamaha motorcycle as he collided with a truck pulling a trailer in an intersection. Brad was thrown from his bike into a ditch as he ran into the front passenger side wheel of the truck. The driver of the truck said he made a complete stop at the stop sign and didn’t see any oncoming traffic. Deetz was taken to Daviess Community Hospital and then flown to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis where he later died.”I’m shocked,” said DLC Media owner Dave Crooks. “He was a super G.M. and a close friend. We’re grieving at this point. It’s a very difficult time.” Currently Brad had been serving as the morning radio host on WFML and as DLC general manager. “We were getting ready to let him go off the air,” said Crooks. “We have a lot of projects in the works and he was going to spend his time concentrating on them. “We have a big void in our company right now.””He had two children, one in high school and the other in junior high, and he was really active in their lives. Just a great dad to them,” said Crooks. “This is just a tragic, tragic event.”Radio Facts would like to send our sincere condolences to the family, friends, and fans of Brad Deetz.
