Adriver was seriously injured in a crash off Highway 12 into the Wisconsin River at Sauk City on Thursday morning, the Dane County Sheriff’s Office said. At about 7:40 a.m. Thursday, a 50-year-old man from Circle Pines, Minnesota, was driving a 2019 Honda Passport west on Highway 12 when he drove off the road, hit a sign and landed in the Wisconsin River, Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Elise Schaffer said in a statement.
