Officials have released further details in a fatal Langlade County Crash earlier this week.
Fifty one year old Michael W. Hoff of Athens was the lone occupant in the single vehicle crash. A medical helicopter was dispatched Monday afternoon, but Hoff was pronounced dead at the scene.
Information obtained from a witness as well as evidence obtained at the crash site indicated that the vehicle was traveling west on highway 64. The driver failed to negotiate a curve, crossed the center-line and then left the roadway, eventually coming to rest after striking several large trees.
The accident is still being investigated by the Wisconsin State Patrol with assistance by the Langlade County Sheriff’s Office.
