On November 4, 2019 at approximately 12:48 a.m., the Grant County Dispatch Center received a call of a one vehicle roll over on Pitzen Lane just South of Dickeyville. Veltcho K Kocherov, age 34 of Chicago stated he was traveling South on USH 61 headed to Chicago. Kocherov's GPS instructed him to turn right onto USH 151, but he turned early onto Pitzen Lane. Due to excessive speed, Kocherov was unable to negotiate a curve in the road. His 2005 Gold Chevrolet Impala slid into the left ditch, crashed into an Alliant Energy power pole and
rolled several times. Kocherov and his passenger Pricy Salgado age 28 also of Chicago, received minor injuries. Both refused transport. The vehicle was a total loss. Assisting the Grant County Sheriff's Office was the Dickeyville Fire Department, Dickeyville EMS and Donnie's Tire and Tow. The crash remains under investigation.
