MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 44-year-old Wisconsin man was killed in a single-vehicle crash in Dunn County Sunday morning.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the crash was reported on 90th Avenue roughly half a mile south of County Highway Q near Menomonie at about 8 a.m. Sunday.

Authorities said it appeared the crash happened earlier in the morning.

A Ford pickup truck apparently left the road at a curve, striking a number of trees.

The driver, Joel Lee Ghinter of Wilson, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities initially reported that there was alcohol detected on Ghinter, but an autopsy is still pending by the Dunn County Medical Examiner.
