A Wautoma man was killed in a single vehicle accident near Portage early Saturday morning. Authorities say the 34 year-old man was a passenger in a vehicle that crashed off Interstate 90/94 around 3am.
Officials say the car rolled in the median and the Wautoma man was ejected. A 33 year-old Plainfield man who was another passenger sustained serious injuries, as did the driver, a 25 year-old man from Friendship.
Authorities say they believe alcohol and speed were factors in the fatal crash, which remains under investigation. Names from the crash have not been released.
