8/4 County Records Eighth Traffic Fatality of 2014

A 64 year old City of Hartford man was killed Saturday morning as a result of a single car roll over crash in the Town of Polk. The crash happened on Highway 144 just south of the Arthur Road intersection and was reported at 11:25 AM to the Washington County Sheriff’s office. The crash remains under investigation but evidence indicates the car was being driven north bound on the highway and completely left the paved roadway to the right. Tire marks show the car re-entering the pavement, crossing the south bound lane and entering the opposite side of the roadway and overturned, coming to rest on its roof. The driver was ejected from the car and was pronounced dead at the scene. Witnesses to the crash indicate no excessive speed or other erratic driving was observed prior to the car leaving the road and is not believed to have been a factor. This is the 8th traffic fatality in the County this year.
