Fatal crash in Town of Porterfield

The Marinette County Sheriff's Office believes speed and alcohol were a factor in a deadly crash early this morning in the Town of Porterfield.

Just before 3:00 a.m. the Sheriff's Office was called to the scene of a one-vehicle crash on State Highway 180 in the Town of Porterfield.

Investigators say a vehicle traveling north, went onto the shoulder, veered across the highway and hit some trees.

The driver, a  white man believed to be in his mid-20's from Crivitz, was pronounced dead at the scene.  His name has not been released.

The crash remains under investigation
