WHITEWATER, Wis. (WIFR) - The Walworth County Sheriff's Office says a 28-year-old man is dead after a head-on crash Sunday afternoon.

Investigators say Brandon Lee Garecht, of Janesville, attempted to pass several cars in a no passing zone on Highway 12 just east of Highway P in the Town of Whitewater. They say Garecht was driving eastbound when his 2007 Suzuki Reno hit a 2014 Ford F150 heading westbound.

Garecht was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. F150 driver, 69-year-old John Wallace, of Richmond, was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Both Garecht and Wallace were the only people in their vehicles at the time of the accident.

The crash is under investigation by the Walworth County Sheriff's Office Crash Investigation Team.
