— A Janesville man remained hospitalized this morning after the car he was driving hit a tree head-on Tuesday night.

His family requested his medical condition not be released, according to a hospital spokeswoman today.


Daniel R. White, 22, of 2435 Woodlane Drive, No. 2, Janesville, was driving his Pontiac Grand Am east on Milwaukee Street at 11 p.m. when he lost control and hit a tree head-on at Somerset Court, according to police.


White was driving at a high rate of speed, swerving between lanes and passing other vehicles, according to the police report.


Driving too fast for conditions appears to be a factor in the accident, according to police.


White was extricated from his vehicle by Janesville firefighters and transported to Mercy Hospital by ambulance, a fire department shift commander said.


White was cited for operating while intoxicated and operating after revocation, according to the police report.


Investigation into the accident continues.
