Deputies—along with Cumberland police, fire and paramedic units—responded and found a Chevrolet truck with the driver trapped inside.

Initial investigation shows the truck lost control, went into a ditch and rolled several times, the sheriff's office said.

The driver—identified as Cole R. Schiebel, 21, of Kewaskum, Wisconsin—was extricated and taken to a hospital. Lifesaving measures were performed, but he later died from his injuries, the sheriff's office said.

Road conditions and alcohol contributed to the crash, authorities said.
