Man killed in Dodge County crash after car strikes culvert and tree

One man is dead after a crash that happened on County Highway E just one mile east of State Highway 26 in the Township of Burnett.

The Dodge County Sheriff's Office responded to the crash around 11:10 p.m. Saturday. 

Officials said that preliminary investigation shows that a 2001 Toyota Corolla entered the gravel shoulder of the roadway and went into a counter clockwise rotation before crossing the center line.

The car struck a culvert and then hit a tree.

The driver, who was alone in the vehicle, died.

The driver was wearing a seat belt, but authorities believe that speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.

The name of the driver is not being released at this time.

The crash remains under investigation by the Dodge County Sheriff's Office Crash Investigation Team.
