A police chase on the Northway ends in a deadly crash.

It started Thursday morning near Exit 19 northbound.


Troopers say they saw a vehicle going more than 90 miles per hour in a work zone.

They tried to stop Skyler Crouse, but he wouldn't pull over.

Police tried to use a spike strip to deflate the car's tires before Exit 25.

With one tire deflated, police say Crouse continued speeding, got off the exit and hit another vehicle on the ramp, killing the driver, Joe Turcotte.

He was a member of the Horicon Planning Board.

Crouse suffered non-life threatening injuries, was taken into custody and to a hospital.

Police say they'll release more details when they become available.
