Ellison Bay man dies in early morning crash

Saturday morning in Ellison Bay began with a tragedy after a 33-year-old man died as the result of a single-vehicle crash.


The Door County Sheriff's Department was dispatched just after 4:45 a.m. to State Highway 42 between Humbug Road and Hillside Drive to a report of a heavily damaged SUV among some nearby trees. The initial investigation shows that Nathan W. McKillen of Ellison Bay was driving northbound when he lost control of his vehicle. He crossed over the centerline and entered a ditch on the north side of the road before striking several trees. McKillen was pronounced dead at the scene. 


STH 42 was closed for nearly four hours as emergency personnel conducted its investigation and cleaned up the crash scene. The incident is still under investigation and an autopsy is being conducted by the Brown County Medical Examiner's Office. The Door County Sheriff's Department was joined by the Liberty Grove and Sister Bay First Responders, Door County Emergency Services, and Door County Highway Department for support.
