RAYMOND - A 31-year-old man died after crashing into a tree in the 4100 block of Highway K, according to the Racine County Sheriff's Office.

The Racine County Communications Center received several calls at 9:03 a.m. Saturday reporting a single-vehicle accident. Initial investigation shows the driver was westbound on Highway K when he drifted onto the shoulder of the road and over-corrected, causing his vehicle to turn sharply across the lanes. The vehicle went into the ditch on the south side of Highway K and struck several pine trees, according to a news release. The driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown to the passenger side of the vehicle and partially ejected, the release stated.

The name of the driver is not being released pending notification of family. The investigation is ongoing, and it does not appear that drugs or alcohol were involved.
