NEILLSVILLE – One person is dead following a crash on Spencer Road near County Rd. O in the Clark County township of Eaton.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office received a call at about 7:56 p.m., on July 7. Initial investigation indicated a pickup truck, being driven by Michael J. Jones, 50, was eastbound on Spencer Road when he lost control and entered the north ditch.
The pickup truck rolled several times, ejecting Michael, and came to rest on its driver’s side facing west. Michael was found unresponsive underneath the truck. Michael was pronounced dead at the scene. Traveling too fast for conditions and failing to have control appear to be factors in the accident. Michael was not wearing a seat belt.
The Greenwood Area Fire Department and Ambulance Service responded to the scene with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and Clark County Coroner. The investigation is ongoing.
This is the fourth traffic fatality in 2018 for Clark County.
