Racine County Sheriff Chris Schmaling confirmed Monday that the man killed in a fatal weekend accident was retired Deputy Gary Gage.

Gage was killed Friday night when the pick-up truck he was driving slid across the road in the 20000 block of Spring Street and flipped over on its side before colliding with a utility pole.

Schmaling confirmed that Gage joined RCSD in 1989 at the Racine County Jail, a story on Racine Uncovered reads.

Gage worked in patrol and as a member of the Special Investigations Unit before moving to Racine County Circuit Court. He retired in 2012.
