2 killed in western Wisconsin hit-and-run

Posted:
BALSAM LAKE, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities are asking for the public's help in finding a pickup truck that struck and killed two people in Polk County of western Wisconsin.

The sheriff's office
says the pickup was southbound on Polk County Highway E through the Round Lake Native American Community when it struck and killed two males around 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Authorities say the driver stopped briefly before continuing south.

The sheriff's office says the two males were involved in a fight at a nearby residence that carried over onto the roadway just before they were struck. Their names have not been released.

Authorities are looking for a dark-colored pickup, possibly a Ford, that might have had amber warning lights. Witnesses reported a blue barrel in the box of the truck and at least two occupants.
