WALWORTH—A town of Walworth man died in a one-vehicle accident early Sunday morning near W6755 Willow Bend Road in the Town of Walworth, according to a news release from the Walworth County Sheriff’s Department.

Jacob Steven Sherwin, 19, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash by the Walworth County Medical Examiner’s Office.

At 3:38 a.m. on Sunday, July 2, Walworth County Sheriff’s deputies received a report of a vehicle which had rolled over onto its roof with unknown injuries. First responders found a silver 2007 Chevrolet Silverado on its roof with severe damage, and Sherwin, unresponsive and with severe injuries.

Evidence indicated Sherwin had been driving the Silverado eastbound on Willow bend Road when the vehicle left the road, struck a tree and rolled over, according to the release. Sherwin was the sole occupant in the vehicle.

Initial investigation revealed speed and lack of seat belts were contributing factors to the accident.

The crash remains under investigation by the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office Crash Investigation Unit and the Walworth County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Besides the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office, Village of Walworth Police Department, Walworth Fire and EMS, Paratech Ambulance Service, Mercy MD1, and the Walworth County Medical Examiner’s Office assisted at the scene.

STATELINE NEWS -- The music always comes first. Then it depends on mastering the necessary skills and subtleties of the role.

Add the fact that Elijah Miller and Bryan Trasvina are self-starters, and it’s easy to see why they were chosen as guest student conductors for the Beloit Janesville Symphony Orchestra’s annual Independence Day pops concerts.

The Fruzen Intermediate School eighth-graders-to-be were selected from Glenn Wilfong’s band class, which participated in BJSO music director Rob Tomaro’s five-week Conducting Kids program.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- A library is more than a collection of books; it’s a place to read, to access the internet, to borrow music and movies and a place for children to grow socially and intellectually. It’s a place outside of home and work where you choose to spend your time. So, when a library outgrows its space, you’d think everyone would be for its expansion, right?

 Yes. Sort of. But not at the expense of our past, said a collection of concerned Whitewater citizens. That’s not to say they don’t recognize the need for a library expansion.
