Authorities: Alcohol apparent factor in fatal Kenosha County crash

by

WHEATLAND, WI (WTAQ) - Kenosha County authorities said alcohol was apparently a factor in a one-vehicle crash that killed a Burlington man.

Sheriff’s deputies are still looking into the mishap in which 28-year-old John Engbert died.

Officers said he drove off a county road in the town of Wheatland and hit a utility pole.

Deputies asked to have a medical helicopter fly Engberg to a hospital – but the weather conditions would not allow it, an ambulance took the victim to the Burlington hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Officials said alcohol was suspected as a cause even though the roads were snowy. The driver was the only person in the vehicle.
