Dodge County Sheriff's Office

TOWN OF HUSTISFORD — One person is dead following a single-vehicle crash in the Town of Hustisford in Dodge County Saturday, March 17.

At around 5:45 p.m., the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene near County Highway E south of Perch Road.

Preliminary investigation shows that Charles Seizinger, 52, from rural Hustisford was operating a 1992 Ford Ranger south on County Highway E and was in the northbound traffic lane while passing another southbound vehicle.

Officials say an oncoming northbound vehicle had to take evasive action so that it would not collide with the Ford Ranger. The Ford Ranger went into a clockwise spin, traveling through both lanes of traffic and into the right ditch.

The Ford Ranger struck an embankment and then overturned.

Seizinger was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene by the Dodge County Medical Examiner. No other individuals were injured and no other vehicles damaged in the crash.

Excessive speed and failure to wear seatbelt were contributing factors in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation by the Dodge County Medical Examiner and the Dodge County Crash Investigation Team.
