August 29, 2016:  SHERIFF'S SPECIAL NEWS RELEASE

Traffic Fatality:

On Sunday, 08/28/2016, at 9:14 PM, Deputies responded to a single vehicle accident in the N9000 block of County Highway J, (south of Hwy. 39), in the Town of York. A passing motorist discovered a sport utility vehicle in the west ditch and provided CPR to the ejected driver. The New Glarus Fire Department, New Glarus EMS, and Green County EMS responded. According to the Green County Corners Office, the 66-year-old rural Monticello man had died at the scene.

Preliminary investigation has determined that the vehicle was traveling southbound when its tires struck the gravel shoulder while rounding a curve, causing the vehicle to swerve and overcorrect when returning to the roadway. The vehicle rolled off the roadway and into the ditch, coming to rest on its wheels. The driver was the sole occupant and was thrown clear as it rolled. There is no evidence of any other vehicle, weather, or alcohol as contributing factors to the accident. Victim identification is being withheld pending notification of family members. This is Green County’s fourth traffic fatality of 2016.

Authorized by:  Sheriff Mark A. Rohloff
