DELAVAN (WITI) — One person is dead after a crash at the intersection of Highway 50 at Town Hall Rd in the Town of Delavan early Tuesday, October 29th.
Officials say officers received information about a vehicle traveling westbound at a high rate of speed on Hwy. 50 in Lake Geneva. A Town of Delavan officer observed the vehicle pass by — and it went out of sight before the officer could turn around to get behind it.
At 4:32a.m., officials say the vehicle ran off the road and crashed. It struck a utility pole and some trees before coming to rest in the parking lot of the Walworth State Bank. The driver of the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.
There were no other vehicle or any other property damaged in the crash.
The crash is under investigation — but speed is a factor in the crash. The name of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of family.
