Mt. Hope man killed in Grant County rollover

MT. HOPE (WKOW) — A rollover crash on County Highway P killed one man in Grant County Monday evening.

Nathan Wachter, 27, from Mt. Hope died at Crossing Rivers ER in Prairie du Chien after being pinned under his truck, according to an incident report from the Grant County Sheriff’s Office.

Wachter failed to negotiate a turn in his 2012 Dodge Ram. His truck went off the north side of the road and struck a tree before rolling several times.

The crash ejected Wachter from the truck before the vehicle settled on top of him.

First responders were dispatched at 7:12 p.m. and the Bloomington Fire Department extracted Wachter.

Wachter is the seventh person killed this year in a Grant County crash, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Bloomington Fire, Patch Grove Fire, West Grant EMS, Bagley First Responders, and Milo’s Towing. The crash remains under investigation.
