WAUPACA COUNTY (WAOW) -- One man is dead, another hurt, in an early-morning rollover crash in Waupaca County.

According to investigators, they got the call around 1:15 AM, Wednesday, of a vehicle in the Waupaca River and one person was trapped.

It appears the driver failed negotiate a corner on a private drive, left the road and plunged into the river.  The vehicle was submerged.

A male passenger was able to get out of the vehicle and found someone to call 911.  The driver of the vehicle was not able to get out.  He was pronounced dead after crews pulled the vehicle from the river.  The passenger had minor injuries but wasn't taken to the hospital.

The driver's name hasn't been released.

Investigators believe alcohol could be a factor in this crash.  The investigation is ongoing.
