The Rock County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a single vehicle roll-over crash that sent a man to the hospital Friday night.

The crash happened at 14631 West State Highway 81 in the Town of Avon. Witnesses at the crash say a black Ford F-150 pickup truck was swerving all over the road while traveling west on the West State Highway 81 from Beloit.

Officials say the pickup truck went onto the gravel shoulder on a curve, swerved back onto the road and crossed the road into the ditch. The truck flipped end to end before barrel-rolling several times and came to rest on all four tires next to a garage at 14631 West State Highway 81.

A 45-year-old Brodhead man was ejected from the truck and sustained life threatening injuries. He was sent to Mercy Hospital in Janesville and is in critical condition.

Officials say alcohol may have played a role in the crash.
