WEST ALLIS, Wis. -

A Mount Horeb teen died after sustaining traumatic head injuries in an accident at the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds, according to a report from the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner.

The report states John Klossner, 19, of Mount Horeb, fell off a moving truck at the fairgrounds on Aug. 3 and died on Monday.

A detective said Klossner was sitting on the bed of the truck with his feet hanging over the edge, and there were four others in the back of the truck. The driver hit the accelerator ejecting Klossner and one other person, according to the detective. Klossner landed on his feet, fell backward and struck his head on the asphalt.
