MADISON, Wis. -

Deputies have found a man who they believe fled the scene of a fatal crash.

One person died in a rollover crash in the town of Albion, according to a release from the Dane County Sheriff's Office.

Dane County sheriff's deputies responded to a single-vehicle rollover crash Saturday night around 5:30 p.m. on Hillside Road near County Road A in the town of Albion.

In a news release, deputies said a 2004 Infinity sedan was traveling at a high rate of speed north on Hillside Road when the driver lost control near County Highway A.

Nathan Trickel, 31, of Madison, was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene, according to deputies. Witnesses told deputies that a second person in the car ran from the crash scene into a nearby field.

The Dane County Medical Examiner said Trickel died from injuries sustained in the crash.

The Dane County Sheriff's Office found Bradley G. Pellmann, Jr., 26, of Cambridge at 12:40 p.m. Monday at a residence in the village of Marshall. He was wanted on an outstanding warrant and could face charges related to the crash, according to deputies. They believe speed and alcohol were contributing factors in the crash.

"It's a felony warrant through the department of corrections so I don't have a lot of details on that, but of course that's why we believe he decided to run," Dane County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Elise Schaffer said.

The Dane County Sheriff's Office Crime Scene Unit and detectives are investigating the crash, along with reconstruction specialists from the Wisconsin State Patrol.
