Whitewater man killed in accident
TOWN OF TROY, Wis. (AP) — Authorities in Walworth County say a 65-year-old man is dead after a one-car crash.
The Walworth County Sheriff identifies the man Monday as Richard F. Eckert of Whitewater. They say he was trying to negotiate a curve just after 5:30 a.m. Sunday in the Town of Troy when his vehicle struck a guardrail, then traveled several hundred more feet before striking a tree.
Authorities say there will be an autopsy later this week to determine a definite cause of death.
