Markesan Man Killed in Single-Vehicle Crash Identified

A 29-year-old man from Markesan was killed in a one-vehicle
crash in Green Lake County Saturday night. Green Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies
were called to the scene of the crash on County Highway K west of Lakeview Road
in the Town of Green Lake around 9 am Sunday.

Investigators say Kevin K. Steinmetz was driving west on County K at a
high rate of speed when his vehicle left the road and hit a group of trees. It
is believed the crash happened around 11:30 Saturday night, but police say where
the vehicle came to rest was difficult to see from the road, so the crash was
not discovered until morning. A path had to be cut to gain access to the
vehicle due to the extent of damage and because of trees blocking access to
where it landed. T
he investigation into the crash is ongoing.
