CPR was being performed while the patient was being transported in the private vehicle, which did meet up with an ambulance en route to the hospital.

The victim, identified as 23-year-old Conrad Schmidt, of West Bend, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police say the crash happened on a trail north of Hwy. 64 in the town of Evergreen when Schmidt missed a curve, struck a tree and was ejected from the machine.
