A 22-year-old South Beloit man is dead after a car crash on Beloit’s west side.  Police responded to the single vehicle crash on South Madison Road at Cleveland Street about 9:30 Sunday night.  The victim was the only occupant.  Officers say it appears the driver was headed west when he ran off the road and through a businesses fence, hitting a pole, and rolling several times.  Speed is considered a likely factor.  An autopsy is planned.
