MADISON (WKOW) -- The death of a Cottage Grove man has authorities concerned of the increased risk for drivers on the roads in the bitter cold and snowy weather.
Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney tells 27 News all drivers should be prepared in case you go off the road and get stranded.
Around 7 a.m. Monday, a county worker came across a crashed vehicle on I-94 just east of I-39. Officials say the vehicle had left the road and rolled end-over-end. The driver was thrown from the window and killed.
Mahoney says the man was outside the vehicle for some time, exposed to the bitter cold, before he was found.
Pending autopsy results, authorities have not released a cause of death or the man's identity, but his father confirmed to 27 News he is 31-year-old Brad Turbyfill.
Turbyfill's friends say they still can't believe it happened.
