Three men are dead after a sports utility vehicle went into a ditch and overturned in a creek in northern Wisconsin.

According to the Langlade County sheriff's department, someone called 911 at about 9 p.m. Friday and when deputies arrived they found the vehicle overturned and partially submerged in the icy waters of Pickerel Creek.

Three men were inside. They were identified as 69-year old Gerald Randerson of Appleton, 50-year old John Cohen of Combined Locks and 65-year old Daniel Krubek of Appleton.
