MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The Walworth County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a fatal crash after reports of a reckless driver in the Town of Sugar Creek Saturday night.

At around 11:20 p.m., the county’s 911 communications center received a report of a reckless driver on Highway 12 south of County Hwy A. The caller said a reckless driver, identified as Timothy M.

Ten minutes later, the caller — who was following Creiglow and providing information about his driving — reported the suspect struck a car heading eastbound at Highway 12 west of County Highway H in Lagrange.
