Teenager Working at Fair Dies of Head Injury

A 19-year-old from Mount Horeb has died, after falling from the back of a pickup truck on the third day of State Fair.

Authorities say John Klossner was at the fair to handle cattle.

He was riding in the back of a pickup truck, when passengers urged the driver to floor the accelerator.

The teen fell from the truck. He landed on his feet, but then fell backward and hit his head on the ground.
