TOWN OF SPRING VALLEY, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a 22-year-old Brodhead man is dead following a single-vehicle crash in the town of Spring Valley.

According to the Rock County Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrived at the scene Sunday morning to find a heavily damaged vehicle on a steep embankment. Officials say the driver, Cody L. Rader, was thrown from his vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. He was the only person in the vehicle and reportedly wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.

Investigators say Rader was traveling north on Highway 11 when his vehicle went off the north side of the road, went up an elevated driveway and struck a tree. They say speed appears to be a contributing factor in the crash.
