A Wisconsin man was airlifted to a hospital after a rollover crash early Friday morning.

The Pierce County, Wisconsin, Sheriff's Office said in a press release it was notified of an accident on Highway 35 near 770th Street in Hager City, Wisconsin at about 4:05 a.m.


Authorities determined 57-year-old Bruce Spitzack, of Maiden Rock, Wisconsin, was traveling northbound on Highway 35 when his Mercury Grand Marquis crossed the center line and went into the south ditch. The release said Spitzack's vehicle struck an embankment and rolled over.

Emergency personnel had to extricate him from the vehicle, and he was airlifted to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with undetermined injuries.

The sheriff's office said the rollover remains under investigation.
