On Saturday March 30th, the Dane County Sheriff’s Office began investigating a fatal rollover crash that occurred on Highway 19 near Brandywood Trail in the town of Burke.


Thirty-year-old Jason Sterken of Monona was killed when his 2001 Honda Civic went off the shoulder from the westbound lane of Highway 19.  His vehicle struck an embankment and subsequently rolled over several times, ejecting Mr. Sterken from the car. 


Detectives now believe that while Mr. Sterken’s body lay in the roadway after the crash, that he was struck by at least one, and potentially two vehicles.  Even though Mr. Sterken died as a result of the crash, additional information is needed by investigators in order to complete a thorough investigation. 


The time of the crash was between 2:00 and 2:30 am.  Anyone that may have information on this incident is asked to call the Dane County Sheriff’s Office tip line at (608) 284-6900 or leave an electronic message via our website at  Tips can be anonymous.
