DANE COUNTY, Wis. (WMTV) - State Highway 138 has been reopened after a rollover crash late Thursday night.

According to the Dane County Sheriff’s Office, just before midnight deputies along with Stoughton Police responded to a crash on State Highway 138 near Oak Lawn Road in the Town of Dunkirk.

The initial investigation shows a 19-year-old was speeding on the highway heading north when he lost control of the car. He and the 18-year-old woman in the car were both ejected as the car went off the road, and rolled over several times.
