FOND DU LAC, Wis. -

A Wisconsin State Patrol accident reconstruction report said a Fond du Lac County sheriff's deputy was going 80 to 92 mph moments before he struck and killed a 20-year-old man.

Deputy Ryan Flood was on his way to a hit-and-run call when he struck a vehicle driven by Matt Koenigs last August. Koenigs was stopped at a stop sign and proceeded through an intersection in the Town of Eden when he was hit by Flood's squad.

The Reporter Media said investigators were able to determine Flood's possible speed just before the crash by looking through computer messages sent between the computer in Flood's squad and the Fond du Lac County dispatch center.

Flood has been on administrative leave since the crash. The State Patrol's report has been turned over to the Waukesha County district attorney.
