(Alto) A Markesan teen was killed in a single vehicle crash in the township of Alto early Sunday morning. Fond du Lac County deputies were dispatched to Lake Maria Road near Oak Grove Road just before 2am.

Authorities say the 17-year-old operator was not breathing and did not have a pulse when first responders arrived on scene.
