Two people are dead after their car went off the road and crashed. Walworth County Deputies responded to County Highway ES near Lakeshore Drive around 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
“Upon arrival, Deputies found a 2001 Volkswagen Crossover had been heading westbound on County Highway ES. The vehicle was negotiating a curve when it left the road. After striking some trees, the vehicle came to rest at the bottom of a steep embankment. The driver and the passenger were ejected and were found deceased by the responding Deputies”, said Captain Scott McClory, Walworth County Sheriff Office.
The subjects are identified as Kyle J. Harris, age 25 (registered owner), and Jennifer M. Johns, age 26. Both subjects resided together in the Elkhorn area. Neither subject was wearing a seat belt. At this time the exact time of the crash is unknown.
The Walworth County Sheriff’s Crash Investigation Unit was summoned and investigated this incident. The investigation is open and ongoing. Autopsies will be performed later this week to determine the exact cause of the deaths.
