Kewaunee man killed in rollover crash identified

KEWAUNEE, Wis. - The Kewaunee County Sheriff has identified the man killed Sunday night after allegedly driving more than 100 mph and crashing.

Noah Gum, 21, of Kewaunee was killed in the crash, Sheriff Matt Joski said Monday.

Around 11 p.m. Sunday, a Kewaunee Police officer saw a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix driving on State Highway 29 at more than 100 mph.

The officer did try to follow the car, but couldn't because of how the fast the driver was going, Sheriff Joski said. 

A short time later, the officer found a one car rollover crash on Hospital Road about 1200 feet south of Adams Road.

The officer saw it was the same car seen earlier. Investigators believe the Grand Prix was driving south, left the roadway and rolled several times.

Gum was pronounced dead at the scene. He was the only person in the car, the sheriff said.

Gum's brother called him a great brother and his best friend. He says Gum loved spending time with family and friends and loved clowning around. 

The accident is still under investigation.
