In Rock County, a single-vehicle rollover car accident claimed the life of an Edgerton man.
The man, 71, was driving when he swerved onto the right shoulder of the road. He tried to return to his regular lane, but he over-corrected his vehicle and ended up in a ditch on the left-hand side. The truck he was driving flipped over, and the man was thrown from the car.
According to police, the man was not wearing his seat belt at the time of his rollover accident. They are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash, but at this time they have no reason to believe that excessive speed or alcohol were involved in the fatal accident.
Our thoughts are with the family of the victim.
