ELKHORN — A 23-year-old Elkhorn man was killed in a traffic accident early Sunday morning on Territorial Road, town of La Grange.
Dylan O. Kaminski crashed his 2006 Subaru Legacy into a tree at about 2:58 a.m., according to a press release from the Walworth County Sheriff's Department.
Kaminski was the driver and sole occupant. He was wearing a seatbelt and wasn't ejected, but sustained critical injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Prior to the crash, Kaminski was traveling west, but crossed the eastbound lane of traffic before entering the ditch.
The Walworth County Crash Investigation Unit was called to the scene. The Walworth County Sheriff's Department was assisted by the La Grange Fire and Rescue Units. An autopsy will be performed later this week to determine the exact cause of death. This is an open and ongoing investigation.
This is the fifth traffic fatality in Walworth County in the past month. Four people have been killed in motorcycle accidents since Memorial Day weekend.
