One person is dead after a vehicle struck a tree in northern Racine County Saturday morning.
The Racine County Sheriff’s Office says they got word just after 5 a.m. on September 12, 2020 of a one-vehicle accident on the 1200 block of 60th Street in the Village of Raymond. A paper carrier observed an SUV off the road against the tree.
Deputies arrived and found one person inside, a 59-year-old Franksville man, dead.
A preliminary investigation determines the vehicle was heading southbound on 60th Street when it crossed the center line, left the roadway and struck a tree. Speed and failure to wear a seatbelt appear to be factors in the accident.
An investigation continues.
