Fatal UTV Crash in Monroe County


 A Wilton man died after a UTV crash in Monroe County on Sunday.

The Monroe County Sheriff responded to a report of a UTV crash on State Trunk Highway 71 just before 2:30 a.m. The driver crossed the center line of State Trunk Highway 71, hit a mailbox and then ran into a utility pole, according to the Monroe County Sheriff.

Officials say the 2016 Polaris UTV snapped the utility wires and overturned onto the driver’s side and he was trapped under the UTV until it was flipped up-right. He was then transported to Tomah Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The incident is still under investigation according to Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Monroe County Medical Examiner’s Office.
