WALWORTH COUNTY — Walworth County sheriff’s officials say an Illinois man died Wednesday morning when he was ejected from a vehicle after a rollover crash on Stateline Road, a half-mile east of the village limits of Sharon.

Sheriff’s officials say 48-year-old Jeffery Janet of Union Grove, Illinois was ejected from his 2008 Ford F-150 truck after traveling eastbound on Stateline Road from the Village of Sharon. Officials say the road was snow packed and icy and Janet lost control of his truck. The truck crossed into the westbound lane before entering the north ditch line, and the truck left the road, overturned, and rolled.

Officials say Janet was the sole occupant of the vehicle and was not wearing his seatbelt. Janet was flown to Rockford Memorial Hospital where he later died of critical injuries.
