The Walworth County Sheriff’s Office said one man had to be extricated and flown to the hospital after an early-morning crash on Highway 12 just outside Whitewater, Wis.

The department said a pick-up truck and an SUV collided head on at about 4:30 a.m. 

William Fojut, 53, was traveling west on Highway 12 in the pickup truck when sheriff’s deputies said the Fojut crossed the center line and struck the SUV traveling east driven by David Wegner, 54.
