FDL Man Dies in Washington County Crash

A Fond du Lac man is dead after crashing his car along Interstate 41 in Washington County on Sunday. Deputies responded to the scene near Highway 144 around 11:50pm Sunday night, for a report of a vehicle that hit the bridge embankment. Preliminary investigations show the 31-year old man behind the wheel went onto the median shoulder before apparently over-correcting and losing control. The vehicle hit a utility pole on the driver’s side door, trapping the man. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Both lanes of northbound interstate 41 were closed for an hour and a half while crews worked on the scene. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
