WHITEWATER (WKOW) -- Early Tuesday morning, the Walworth County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a two-vehicle head-on crash. 

Officials say the accident happened on Highway 12 near Indian Mound Parkway in the Town of Whitewater.

Officials say when deputies arrived, they found two vehicles in the eastbound lane of Highway 12. According to their preliminary investigation, 53-year-old William Fojut, of Whitewater, was traveling westbound on Highway 12 in a Chevy pickup when he crossed the center line and entered the eastbound lane. Fifty-four-year-old David Wegner, of Fort Atkinson, was driving an SUV eastbound and was hit head on. 

Wegner was trapped in his vehicle and required extrication from Whitewater Fire and Rescue.  Flight For Life was called and flew Wegner from the scene with multiple injuries. There's no word on this condition.

Fojut was taken to an area hospital and released with minor injuries. Both men were wearing their seatbelts.  

Officials do not believe alcohol or drugs contributed to this crash. The crash remains under investigation.
