Beaver Dam paramedics transported the man to Marshfield Medical Center – Beaver Dam. He was then taken by U.W. Med Flight to U.W. Hospital in Madison.

The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office Crash Investigation Team assisted with the crash reconstruction.

Kreuziger said that the rising sun may have been one of the contributing factors in the crash.

“The Beaver Dam Police Department urges all drivers to slow down during their morning commutes as well as other times they are unable to see due to sunlight,” Kreuziger said in the press release. “There was almost a secondary crash at the same location due to the sunlight and at 7:15 a.m. the Beaver Dam Police Department responded to another crash on East Third Street where the driver could not see due to sunlight and struck a parked vehicle.”
