A firefighter and paramedic from Trevor was killed at 2:57 AM Saturday in a single-vehicle crash when the truck he was driving struck a utility pole in Salem on the 12200 block of 204th Avenue (Highway B).
Kenosha County Sheriff's Department Deputies responded to reports of the crash and reported that the man's pickup truck rolled over and struck a utility pole. The pole was broken in two and had fallen on the truck. Eventually, Lake County Sheriff's Deputies took over the case, as it occurred just over state lines.
Authorities do not believe that drugs or alcohol were involved in this tragic accident.
