MADISON — Authorities say a downhill skier has died in a crash in Dane County.
The county medical examiner's office says 37-year-old Jonathan Allen of Waukesha was skiing Saturday afternoon at Tyrol Basin near Mount Horeb. He suffered fatal injuries when he crashed into a tree at a high rate of speed.
Weather conditions prevented a medical helicopter from responding, so the man was taken by ambulance to UW Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The medical examiner's office and sheriff's deputies are investigating.
