Neillsville man killed in crash during police pursuit

PINE VALLEY, WI (WTAQ) - A 39-year-old Neillsville man was killed after he rolled his vehicle while being pursued by a Clark County sheriff's deputy. 

It all started around 1 a.m. Wednesday, while deputies were told that a vehicle was driving through yards near Neillsville in the town of Pine Valley. 

A short time later, the deputy was almost struck head-on when a vehicle reportedly crossed a center line. The officer said the vehicle appeared to be one that was going through yards, so he chased the driver with his lights and siren activated. 

Officials said the vehicle sped through a stop sign, and lost control a short time later. It veered into a ditch and rolled over several times. 

The driver died at the scene. A passenger was seriously injured. 

No names were immediately released. An investigation continues.
