TOWN OF LYONS, Wis. (AP) -

 

Walworth County authorities say an off-duty Twin Lakes police lieutenant has been killed in a two-vehicle crash in the Town of Lyons.
   
Deputies say 36-year-old Jeffery C. Kreft of Spring Prairie was driving home from his shift Saturday about 6:30 a.m. An initial investigation says a pickup truck driven by a 16-year-old boy crossed the center line and collided head-on with Kreft's vehicle.
   
Kreft was pronounced dead about 45 minutes later. The teenager broke his foot. He was treated and released from a hospital. Both drivers were wearing seatbelts and were the sole occupants of their vehicles.
   
No citations or charges have been issued. The crash investigation remains open and the Walworth County district attorney's office will review the final report.
