The Monroe County Sheriff's Office said that they received a 911 call from Tomah Memorial Hospital at 3:54 a.m. that the person had fallen and hit his head on the pavement.

The statement said a pickup driven by 21-year-old Dylan Kobel of rural Tomah, was headed east on Highway 16 near Hawthorne Road when passenger Dustin Yenter, 23, fell from the truck.
