Teen killed in fatal accident near Brodhead


Brodhead (WKOW) -- from Green County Sheriff's Department:  Monday night, the Green County Sheriff's Department Communication Center received a wireless 911 call reporting a vehicle crash in Decatur Township approximately one-quarter mile west of Brodhead on Decatur Road.

  Sheriff's Deputies, along with Brodhead Police, Fire, and EMS responded.

  Preliminary investigation indicates that a passenger car driven by nineteen-year-old Ryan D. Strommen of Brodhead was travelling eastbound on Decatur Road when the driver lost control, driving off the road and struck a tree.

  Strommen was not wearing a seat belt and speed is a contributing factor.

  An autopsy will be performed to determine if the driver had a medical problem that may have contributed to the crash.
