Ezekiel Jonas, 20, died in crash Thursday about 1 a.m. on Powell Road in the Town of Manitowish Waters, the agency said in a statement.

Alcohol and "excessive speed" were believed to be factors in the crash, investigators said. No other details were released.


Vilas County Sheriff's officials say a 20-year-old man died early Thursday morning after the truck he was driving crashed into a tree.  His name has not yet been released.

When first responders arrived, they found a pickup truck had struck a tree on Powell Road in the Township of Manitowish Waters near the intersection of Alder Lake Road.
