I've tried to identify this plane by the writing on the plate on the cowling but have been unable to match the logo, and when I've blown the size up the writing is unreadable. It looks something like SCOOTROM with a long tail on the upper part of the "S" and with two straight lines under it. I think this light crash took place in Wisconsin, perhaps Madison or Stoughton but I don't have a year.
I believe this is a Stinson HW-75 (Also called the 105 Voyager).
I know for sure this is a Stinson aircraft due to the logo which was often rendered on the side of aircraft with a double underline and certainly has the long tail on the upper part of the S as you described:
Logo from the orignal picture, rotated and de-skewed
The identifying features which make me think this is an HW-75/105 Voyager are:
- Similar decals down the side of the fueselage as shown in image below
- Twin Supports meeting at the main gear roots
- Shape of the step for access to the cockpit
- Grill both side and below the spinner
