The sheriff’s office said, based on a preliminary investigation, it is believed the car was headed southbound and drifted off the road to the left. It appears to have reentered the roadway and lost control before traveling off the right side of the interstate and rolling down the embankment out of view. 

It is not immediately clear when the crash happened, but it is believed to have happened "during the overnight hours." The sheriff’s office said there were likely no witnesses to the crash. 

If anyone has information on the accident or the driver, they are encouraged to call the sheriff’s office at 262-335-4420. The car in question is a silver 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder convertible. 

Parts of southbound I-41 were closed for roughly two-and-a-half hours during emergency response. 

It is the 11th traffic fatality in the county in 2021.
