Platteville man seriously injured when SUV rolls and catches fire


A Platteville man was seriously injured on Thursday when his SUV rolled in a ditch and caught on fire.

Kelly Johnston, 42, was headed north on Highway 151, near McAdam Road, when he lost control of his SUV.  The Grant County Sheriff's Department says the SUV went down a large embankment and rolled when Johnston overcorrected.  They say the vehicle went through a fence into a rock filled ditch and caught on fire.  Johnston was ejected from the SUV at some point and landed on McAdam Road.

Johnston was taken to Mercy Hospital in Dubuque with serious injuries.

The accident remains under investigation.
