Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

RAYMOND – A 59-year-old Franksville man was killed early Saturday in a single-vehicle crash in the Village of Raymond.

Racine County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to the 1200 block of 60th Street about 5 a.m. Saturday after a paper carrier reported seeing an SUV off the roadway against a tree. Deputies found the man deceased inside the vehicle. 

Deputies reported the vehicle appeared to have been southbound on 60th Stree when it crossed the centerline, left the roadway, and struck a tree.

According to a news release, failure to wear a seatbelt and speed appeared to be factored into the fatal accident.

The driver’s name has not been released.
