An early-morning, single-vehicle crash in Dunn County February 22 has left one person dead.

Magdaleno Enriquez Torres, 35 years old of Bloomington, MN, died when the truck he was a passenger in lost control and rolled while traveling west along Interstate 94 in Dunn County.

The accident happened around 3:56 a.m. on Monday, February 22, 2021 at mile marker 55 of I-94 near Elk Mound.

Troopers from the Wisconsin State Patrol, along with deputies from the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene of the reported one-vehicle rollover crash with injuries.

A 2008 Dodge Durango, driven by 24-year-old Raul Chiman-Arce of Minneapolis, MN, was westbound on I-94 when it lost control and rolled into the ditch.

Enriquez Torres, who was a passenger in the rear seat, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

During the crash investigation, Troopers discovered Chiman-Arce did not have a valid license and was subsequently arrested for Knowingly Operating without a Valid License causing death.

While Chiman-Arce was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash, Enriquez Torres was not.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the deadly incident.

The crash remains under investigation.
