A 31-year-old Columbus man died in a one-vehicle accident early Friday morning accident about 5 miles west of North Bend.

Jacob W. Schamp was eastbound on U.S. Highway 30 near County Road 2 when the accident occurred, said Dodge County Sheriff Steve Hespen in a press release.

Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the scene at 12:38 a.m. An investigation showed that Schamp was driving a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe, which went off the south side of the highway and rolled.

Schamp, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Speed is considered a factor in the accident, which remains under investigation, the sheriff said.

The North Bend Fire and Rescue Department assisted the sheriff’s office.
