Concerning the single vehicle fatal crash on Cth K, west of Lakeview Rd, the identity of the deceased is as follows:
Kevin K. Steinmetz, age 29, Markesan, WI 

On Sunday, August 4, 2019, 9:00am, Green Lake County Sheriff’s E911 Communications Center received a call concerning a motor-vehicle crash on Cth. K west of Lakeview Rd.
At 9:09am, Law Enforcement arrived on scene, followed by Emergency Responders, to find a single vehicle crash with the driver deceased. Due to the extent of the damage to the vehicle and also tree’s that were obstructing access to the scene, a path had to be cut to the final point of rest of the vehicle.
A preliminary examination of the scene indicates that the single vehicle involved, a 2004 Subaru, was headed west-bound on Cth. K at a higher rate of speed when the vehicle left the roadway and stuck a group of trees. The vehicles’ final point of rest made it difficult to see from the roadway and the crash is believed to have happened at approximately 11:30pm Saturday night.
The single occupant, identified as a 29 year old Markesan man, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The deceased name is being withheld pending notice to family.
This fatal traffic crash is being investigated by the Green Lake County Sheriff’s Office and Coroner, in conjunction with a Wisconsin State Patrol reconstruction. The investigation is on-going.
This incident was responded to by the Green Lake County Sheriff’s Office, Wisconsin State Patrol, Markesan/Grand River Fire/Rescue and Emergency Management, Southern Green Lake County Ambulance, and the Green Lake County Coroner’s Office.
