WASHINGTON COUNTY -- A 31-year-old Fond du Lac man has died after he struck a utility pole on I-41 overnight in Washington County.

According to the Washington County Sheriff's Department, the single-vehicle accident occurred on I-41 northbound in the Town of Polk. 

The Sheriff's Office's investigation shows that the car drove onto the median shoulder and then lost control trying to get back into the lane. The car struck the utility pole on the driver's side.

The Sheriff's Office says the man was wearing a seatbelt and speed does not seem to be a factor in this crash.

The investigation is still ongoing. 

This is the seventh traffic fatality in Washington County this year.
