JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) - A correctional officer died in a car accident that happened on his way home from a shift at the Rock County jail. The county sheriff’s office says 44-year-old Dale Bryant, of Evansville, crossed the centerline on Highway 14 between Janesville and Evansville at 3 p.m. Saturday.
He crashed head-on with a semi-tractor pulling a milk trailer. The driver of the truck and his wife were uninjured. Highway 14 was closed for six hours while the Wisconsin State Patrol investigated. The sheriff’s office says Bryant was not wearing a seat belt, but the couple was wearing their belts.
