EXCLUSIVE: Mother of interstate crash victim speaks out

Posted: Updated:

WATERLOO (WKOW) -- It's the pain no mother should ever have to bear. Burying a child is a parent's worst nightmare. For Marla Hall, that nightmare became reality after she received the dreadful news that her son, Clenton Hall, was killed in a car accident.  

"I don't know what I'll do without him," Marla said as she wiped the tears off her face. "No parent should have to go through this."

Clenton was Hall's only child. He was simply her everything. She says he was the child every mother dreamt of having.

"If I called him and he didn't answer, he'd call me back in two minutes because he knew I'd be worried about him," Marla explained as she held two pictures of her son in her lap. 

But Thursday morning, there would be no phone call. Instead, it was a knock on the door by police who gave the bad news.

Clenton, along with two other coworkers who were employed at an accounting firm in Milwaukee were on their way back from a business trip in La Crosse.

According to Wisconsin State Patrol, 32-year-old Brysen Daniel Wills of Waunakee was driving erratically on I-94 near Deerfield on Wednesday night when he began going the wrong way on the interstate. That's when he struck two vehicles head-on. Clenton was in one of those vehicles along with his girlfriend Katey Pasqualini and Kim Radtke,both of Milwaukee. All three of them died. The driver of their car, 28-year-old Brian Falk of Whitefish Bay, remains in the hospital with life-threatening injuries. 

The driver of the second vehicle that was hit, 23-year-old Patrick Wasielewski of Northbrook, Illinois, was also killed. 

Clenton's mom says her son recently met Pasqualini's mother.

"They were so happy, and she said she had never seen Katey so happy. Clenton was so happy and he had everything going for him," Marla said. 

He was a son known for always singing around the house, at times making up his own lyrics. His aunt, Caralee Butzine, said he was the class clown, always bringing laughter to the room. 

"He was the best son a mother could ever have. He always made everybody laugh and he always cared about everybody," Marla said. 

Now, all that's left are precious pictures of a young man whose future was so bright. 

"I'm trying to stay strong only because I know he wouldn't want me to be devastated," Marla added. 

A mother left crushed, knowing her son won't be coming home for the holidays. 

"It was just over in a second. But they're together," she said as she looked at a photo of Clenton holding Pasqualini in his arms.
