One person is dead and another hospitalized after an early morning traffic crash in Clark County.

Deputies were called to Highway T about two-and-a-half miles north of Withee at 3:15 a.m. Thursday. Their initial investigation shows the northbound vehicle struck a mailbox and a driveway embankment causing it to become airborne before coming to rest in the west ditch.

The passenger, 30-year old Lisa Gaede, was able to call for help, and was flown to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield with serious injuries. 54-year old Jeffrey Gaede was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputies say neither occupant was wearing seat belts. They believe speed was a factor in the crash, and they suspect alcohol may be involved as well.

The investigation is continuing.
