NEILLSVILLE, Wis. (WEAU) - A Neillsville man was killed in a crash after leading investigators on a chase early Wednesday morning.
The Clark County Sheriff's Office says it took a report of a vehicle driving through yards near Grand Avenue and South Mound Road, north of Neillsville, around 1 a.m. Monday. A deputy found the vehicle on South Mound Road, when it crossed the center of the road, and almost hit the squad car. The deputy turned on the lights and siren on the squad car and chased the vehicle, which went through a stop sign at County Road G. About 3/4 of a mile west of County Road G, the vehicle went into the ditch on the south side of the road, and flipped several times. It ended up on its wheels.
The driver, who the department says is a man from Neillsville, was killed instantly. A passenger ended up with severe injuries. Names have not been released.
