Brown County sheriff’s officers are investigating how a car ended up flipped over in a creek bed, killing the driver.

Brown County Sheriff John Merchant said officers were called to the scene on Linden Road north of Hiawatha at about 7:50 a.m. Tuesday to find a Buick Century on its top in a ditch at the bottom of a creek.

Emergency responders worked for about an hour to free the occupant, who has not yet been identified pending notification of family members. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
