GRAND CHUTE, WI (WTAQ) - A car crash in the Wisconsin Dells area has claimed the life of a Grand Chute firefighter.

29-year-old Jesse Pickett was killed in the crash Sunday. Authorities say Pickett's car crossed the center line on a curve and struck a semi. 

Pickett was driving home with his family. FOX 11 reports his wife and two daughters were hurt and taken to a Madison area hospital.

Slippery roads were apparently not a factor in the accident.

Pickett has been with the Grand Chute Fire Department since 2009. He was the department's public information officer.
