MONROE - The names of the three young men seriously injured in a rollover crash southwest of Monroe Friday have been released.

Brandon D. Broshous, 26, Juda, and Justin S. Helton, 24, and Brenton C. Hodapp, 24, both of Monroe, were all ejected from the vehicle, according to Green County Sheriff Mark Rohloff.

Helton was able go to the nearest residence where the homeowner called 911, while Broshous and Hodapp were semi-conscious at the scene.

They were taken first to Monroe Clinic and later to the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison, with one airlifted by MedFlight helicopter. Broshous was listed in good condition and Hodapp in fair condition as of Wednesday afternoon, according to a UW Hospital representative. Helton was no longer at the hospital.

Alcohol and speed were factors in the crash, said Lt. Paul Weichbrod of the Green County Sheriff's Office. However, as of Wednesday, it was unclear who was driving at the time of the crash.

"We can't complete the investigation until the guys are healthy enough to be interviewed," Weichbrod said. The Wisconsin State Patrol is assisting the sheriff's office in the investigation.

The one-vehicle rollover crash was reported in the W6800 block of Melvin Road at about 11:20 p.m. March 16.

The vehicle was westbound on Melvin Road just east of Honey Creek Road in the Town of Clarno when it left the road, struck a culvert and rolled several times. The initial investigation determined all three occupants weren't wearing their seatbelts. The airbags deployed.

Melvin Road was closed for about 11 hours, reopening at roughly 10:15 a.m. the next day. Monroe Police and Monroe firefighters assisted at the scene. The vehicle was severely damaged and towed.
