St croix county crash

A man from Hudson, Wisconsin, has died eight days after a crash in St. Croix County.

The crash on southbound Hwy. 35 in St. Joseph Township happened around 11 p.m. on March 27, which saw a 2011 Ford Focus pass another vehicle at a high rate of speed before hitting a guardrail.

The Focus then went airborne, landing back on the guardrail before hitting a tree.

The driver, 35-year-old Brian Foster, died this past Thursday after being airlifted by Life Link to Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

The St. Croix County Sheriff's Office says that Foster was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, and also notes that alcohol may have been a factor.

It continues to investigate the cause of the crash.

It's the 4th traffic fatality reported in St. Croix County, which is just across the border from Minnesota, since the start of the year.
