TOWN OF WESCOTT (WAOW) -- One man is dead after a car hit a tree just early Friday morning in Shawano County.

Authorities say just before 1:00 a.m, the Shawano County Sheriff's Department responded to a crash in the Town of Wescott at the intersection of Lake Dr. and Foesch Rd.

According to the department, Deputies and EMS personnel found Alan Steichen, 57, unresponsive in his car.
