ROCK COUNTY, Wis. (WIFR) – A 66-year-old man from Monroe, Wisconsin is dead after a single car roll-over crash Wednesday around 9:00 p.m. at State Highway 104 just north of Atkinson Road in Rock County.

The man was the only person in the car at the time of the accident.

An investigation revealed that the man was traveling northbound on State Highway 104 when he crossed the center line into the southbound lane, and then swerved back into the northbound lane.

Authorities say the man over-corrected and lost control of his car which went into a ditch on the east side of the road, eventually crashing into a limestone wall.

The man was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from the car. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

State Highway 104 was rerouted for about four hours until the investigation was completed at the scene.
