Fatal traffic crash west of Orfordville
A 75-year-old Beloit man is dead after a traffic accident Tuesday afternoon on Highway 11 west of Orfordville.
The Rock County Sheriff's office reports a trailer loaded with a Bobcat, being hauled by 29-year-old Austin Hauser of Orfordville, began to sway back and forth, crossing over the center line. The trailer struck a pick-up truck driven by Frank McIntyre. The accident was reported a little before 4:00 just east of South Potter Road in Spring Valley Township. McIntyre was pronounced dead at Mercy Hospital in Janesville at 6:20 in the evening. Both drivers were wearing seat belts, and alcohol is not suspected as a contributing factor.
The investigation does continue.
