RAYMOND — A Raymond man is dead following a single-vehicle rollover crash that occurred here Thursday night.
At 10:09 p.m. Thursday, Racine County deputies and Raymond fire crews were dispatched to the 3900 block of West Highway K for a rollover crash, according to a Racine County Sheriff’s Office release issued Friday. A witness reported hearing the crash and found the driver lying next to the vehicle.
Deputies arrived on scene and found a car lying on its side in a yard. The car had driven through two utility poles and struck a large rock. It appeared that the car had rolled at least once, ejecting the driver.
The operator and lone occupant of the vehicle was a 21-year-old man from Raymond. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officials say speed appears to be a factor in the crash and the driver was not wearing a seat belt.
The Sheriff’s Office said Friday that it would not release the name of the deceased man until family has been notified.
