BEAVER, WI— One person is dead, following a single-vehicle accident in Marinette County.

Sheriff Jerry Sauve says around 4 p.m. Wednesday his office received a report of a power pole on fire on 3rd Road between State Highway 64 and County Road P in the town of Beaver.

Responding deputies say the vehicle was southbound when it left the road, entered the ditch, hit the pole, and came to rest in a corn field. A 53-year-old man was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Two other men walked to a nearby farm and were later taken to the hospital for treatment. A fourth man left the scene on foot and has not been found.

Sauve says significant follow-up work is needed on the case, which remains under investigation.

Names and further information will be released at a later time.

Nicole was born near Detroit but has lived in the U.P. most of her life. She graduated from Marquette Senior High School and attended Michigan State and Northern Michigan Universities, graduating from NMU in 1993 with a degree in English.
