Two dead following crash on Highway 75 in Racine County; speed appears to be factor
RACINE COUNTY — Two people were killed in a crash early Tuesday morning, December 15th in the Town of Dover.
The Racine County Sheriff’s Office responded to a one-vehicle accident in the 1900 block of Highway 75/South Beaumont Avenue around 5 a.m.
The two occupants, 20-year-old Jarett Heck from Salem and 22-year-old Zachary Faulhaber from Kansasville, were ejected and pronounced dead at the scene.
Officials say it appears their vehicle left the roadway, struck a culvert and became air borne before striking a tree and power pole.
The investigation continues into the cause of the accident but speed does appear to have been a factor.
No further information available at this time.
