A 21-year-old Madison man has died in a single-car crash at about 1 a.m., July 13 in Jackson County.

A Black River Falls Police Department officer discovered the accident that occurred on Interstate 94 at mile marker 116 westbound.

The man, and lone occupant of the vehicle, was driving on Hwy. 54, attempted to turn onto the Interstate 94 ramp, traveled sideways, went air born over the eastbound lanes of I-94, landed on the guardrail in the median, traveled across the westbound lanes and rolled into the gore area, according to an investigation.

The name of the driver is being withheld pending notification of the family. 

The Black River Falls Police Department and Jackson County Sheriff’s Office assisted the Wisconsin State Patrol, which continues to investigate the incident.
