ELK MOUND, Minn. - One person is dead and another injured following a one-vehicle crash on interchange leading to Interstate 94.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says it happened Wednesday morning just before 7 a.m., when the driver of the vehicle attempted to negotiate the interchange leading from Highway 20 to I-94 westbound.

Investigators say the driver failed to navigate the curve, lost control and rolled the vehicle.

That driver, 67-year-old Gary Fritz of Hortonville, Wis., was pronounced dead on the scene. His 66-year-old wife Donna Fritz was rushed to Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire with non-life threatening injuries.

Although the state patrol is still investigating the fatal crash, poor visibility and driving too fast for conditions
may have been factors.
