A 21-year-old Kewaunee man was killed in a single-vehicle rollover accident just south of the city of Kewaunee late Sunday night.
According to a news release from Sheriff Matt Joski, a Kewaunee police officer encountered the vehicle entering the city on State Highway 29 traveling at a speed in excess of 100 mph.

A short time later, the officer found the vehicle had crashed on Hospital Road approximately 1,200 feet south of Adams Road, leaving the roadway and rolling over several times.
