The Dodge County's Sheriff's Office has identified the driver in a fatal car crash, which happened in the Township of Rubicon.

The deceased driver was identified as 40-year-old, James D. Peszko of Hartford, on Thursday by the Dodge County Sheriff's Office.

The crash happened around 9:22 p.m. on Tuesday night near Pond Road and Jefferson Road. The Sheriff's Office's initial investigation shows a single car was eastbound on Pond Road and left the roadway on the south side. The car rolled over and landed on its roof in a nearby farm field.

After further investigation, the Sheriff's Office now suspects excessive speed and alcohol impairment as suspected factors in the crash. The Sheriff's Office says Peszko was wearing his seatbelt. 

The Sheriff's Office and Crash Investigation Team are still investigating the crash.
