Beloit man dies in traffic accident
A 28-year-old Beloit man is dead after a single vehicle accident this morning on Highway 81 in southwestern Rock County. The Sheriff's office reports the man was driving his pick-up truck west on 81, near South Olson road, a little after 7:00 o'clock, when he caught the gravel shoulder, over-corrected, and traveled across the road into the opposite ditch. The truck rolled and hit a tree. He was thrown out, and found lying next to the vehicle. He was not wearing a seat belt. Deputies say wet pavement may have been a contributing factor, but they're still investigating.
