Fatal Accident

By  | 

Just before 5 p.m. Sunday night, the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department was called to extricate a driver. The incident happened at Fritz and Moate Road near Durand.

The Sheriff's Department says the vehicle left the road and struck a bridge embankment. The driver is a 43-year-old male from South Beloit who died at the scene.

The vehicle was in such bad condition the Sheriff's Department can't determine if the driver was wearing a seat belt. Alcohol is said to be a factor in this accident.

A name is set to be released on Monday.
