Four people have died after the car they were traveling in struck a utility pole near Madison, Wisconsin.
The car accident happened around 5 p.m. on Saturday in Fitchburg. There were five men in the car, all apparently under the influence of alcohol. The 18-year-old driver sped through a stop sign and hit a utility pole. The force from the pole caused the car to flip over.
The driver was the only survivor of the accident, and he tried to flee the scene. He was apprehended a few blocks away and was arrested. He is being charged with four counts of homicide due to driving under the influence.
The four men that were killed in the accident range in age from 17 to 25, and were all from Wisconsin.
