HUSTISFORD, WIS. — The Dodge County Sheriff's Office is investigating a single vehicle accident that occurred near County Highway E and State Highway 60 on Saturday.

According to the sheriff's office, the driver was heading south on County Highway E around 11:13 a.m. in the Township of Hustisford when they left the roadway, drove through several ditches, over a driveway, across state Highway 60, through a fence, and into a storage container.
