On March 25, 2022, at approximately 7:55 a.m., the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Communication Center began taking calls of a white van off the roadway and against a tree.
As deputies responded to the area of I-41 southbound, north of Hwy DW, callers provided additional updates of injuries.
Upon deputies’ arrival, a white van was confirmed to have exited I-41 coming to rest against a large tree. The van’s passenger had extricated himself and was able to walk and talk with law enforcement. Immediate lifesaving efforts were attempted on the trapped operator of the van; however, it was quickly determined the operator was deceased.
Initial investigation shows the involved vehicle to have first entered the median at highway speeds, followed by an evasive right-hand turn of the steering wheel from the operator. This oversteer placed the van into a sideways skid, causing the van to skid across both lanes of travel prior to leaving the roadway, then through the right of way fence and into a tree, approximately 100 feet off the paved portion of I-41.
Allenton Fire and Rescue responded to the scene and assisted with patient care and extrication efforts.
The crash continues to be investigated by the Sheriff’s Office. The forty-one-year-old operator’s name is not being released at this time.
