Officers investigated and located a vehicle that had rolled over and was on its roof, with the driver, who was the only occupant, ejected, Severson said.

Officers immediately began life saving measures on the 24-year-old Janesville man, who was taken to Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center with life-threatening injuries, Severson said.

The Wisconsin State Patrol Technical Reconstruction Unit is assisting with the investigation, which is continuing, Severson said.
