UPDATE: Victims identified after fatal Portage County crash


Two Stevens Point men are dead after a rollover crash Sunday in Portage County.

According to the Portage County Sheriff's Department, Matthew Brucker, 25, and Robert Hartman, 66, were killed in the crash.

Authorities say the Brucker failed to stop at the intersection of Sunset Drive and CTH DB in the Town of Dewey.

The vehicle went airborne, entered a ditch, and knocked down several trees before landing upside down.

Investigators say excessive speed, alcohol, and driving without seatbelts are all believed to be contributing factors.

The incident is under investigation.
