Man wanted in connection with Wisconsin car accident found

Driving at high speeds requires a good deal of concentration, which is something most impaired drivers do not have. Virtually every Wisconsin driver knows that speed and alcohol can lead to a deadly car accident. Nevertheless, some drivers still get behind the wheel after they have been drinking.

Police believe this may have been the case in a single car crash that happened recently. The driver of the car was reportedly traveling at excessive speeds just before losing control of the vehicle. It then flipped over.

During the crash, one of the two occupants in the vehicle was thrown out. The 31-year-old man suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. When police arrived, witnesses to the accident told them another person was in the vehicle, but fled the scene.

Police later located the other man believed to be in the vehicle. It turns out, he has an outstanding warrant, which may be why he failed to stay with the wreckage. The circumstances surrounding the crash are still under investigation by the Wisconsin State Patrol and the Crime Scene Unit with the Dane County Sheriff's Office. It is possible that charges could be filed against the survivor.

Reports were not clear about who was driving the vehicle at the time of the car accident. However, while the family of the victim awaits the outcome of the investigation, they may consider filing a wrongful death claim against the other man. If authorities determine that the man was driving the vehicle, and it is proven that he was negligent, the court may award the family compensation to cover the damages they incurred as a result of the car accident that caused the loss of their loved one.
