UPDATE: Names released in Jackson Co. rollover crash

JACKSON COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) -- Names are released in the Jackson County crash that sent four people to the hospital.

It happened just before 4:30 a.m. Sunday on Highway 121, near Ellingson Road in the Township of Northfield.

The initial investigation shows a pickup going east on Highway 121 left the roadway and rolled several times.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office said the truck was driven by 24-year-old Carson Scholze of Merrillan.

There were three passengers in the truck: 26-year-old Stephanie Wathen of Hixton, 20-year-old Cody Miller of Humbird, and 20-year-old Cole Young of Humbird.

All occupants were ejected, and everyone was hurt.

Wathen and Young were transported by ambulance from the scene to local hospitals. Scholze and Miller were flown by helicopter.

The sheriff's office said alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash.

This case remains open and under investigation.
