Car hit fence

On November 12, 2022 at 6:28 AM the Grant County Sheriff's Office received a call about a one vehicle crash into a fence that occurred the night before at about 8:00 PM on S. Ridge Rd, Mt. Hope Township, WI.

The investigating deputy learned that Christopher Udelhoven, 30, of rural Lancaster, WI was driving his 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt going east on S. Ridge Rd just west of Pleasant Valley Rd when multiple deer entered the road surface. He swerved to his left to avoid hitting the deer and left the road on the north side.
