    WITI-TV, WAUKESHA -- Detective Steve Pederson with the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department calls it a case of too much speed. Early Wednesday morning, the City of Waukesha Police radar clocked the red Ford Explorer doing 97 miles an hour in a 35 miles per hour zone.

    The driver is 33-year-old Bryan J. Szopinski eluded the city officer and nearly hit another car. The officer reports the SUV's lights went black but could not see a vehicle. The city officer assumed the driver had turned into a development and into a garage.

    In fact the right turn off of Genesee Road was onto a cul-du-sac in the Town of Waukesha. With lights out and still speeding, the driver sped through two backyards and a garden be slamming into a tree and flipping over. When deputies arrived they found the wreckage but no driver but plenty of blood on the scene.

    Police searched the dark yards with flashlights for about 40 minutes. It appears the man crawled nearly 60 feet before collapsing on the property next door.

    It's rare that I say this, but yes, that WAS too much speed.

    Darwin Award nominee perhaps?
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

    If speed kills, how come I'm still alive?
