— WATERTOWN – A 19-year-old woman from Lake Mills is dead after a one-car accident in Watertown Township early Saturday, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Ashley A. Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene. She was a passenger in a car driven by Michelle M. Mess, 18, of Lake Mills. Mess was treated at Watertown Hospital.


It appears Johnson was not wearing a seat belt, and it appears alcohol was a factor in the accident, according to a sheriff’s office news release.


Deputies were alerted to the accident on West Road near Navan Road at 222 a.m. Saturday. Investigators believe the driver failed to negotiate a curve, and the vehicle went off the road and rolled.
