WHEATLAND, WI (WTAQ) - Kenosha County authorities said alcohol was apparently a factor in a one-vehicle crash that killed a Burlington man.
Sheriff’s deputies are still looking into the mishap in which 28-year-old John Engbert died.
Officers said he drove off a county road in the town of Wheatland and hit a utility pole.
Deputies asked to have a medical helicopter fly Engberg to a hospital – but the weather conditions would not allow it, an ambulance took the victim to the Burlington hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Officials said alcohol was suspected as a cause even though the roads were snowy. The driver was the only person in the vehicle.
