WOODRUFF, Wis. -- A suspected drunken driver accused of causing a crash that killed a sheriff's deputy is expected in Vilas County court today.

Vilas County sheriff's officials say 29-year-old Kory Dahlvig of Arbor Vitae was killed while responding to a call to assist Lac du Flambeau Tribal Police about 8:30 p.m. Sunday.

Investigators say Deputy Dahlvig's squad hit the back of a dump truck that had pulled out onto a highway near Woodruff. A 49-year-old Lac du Flambeau man was arrested on suspicion of driving drunk.

Dahlvig worked for Lac du Flambeau Tribal Police before joining the Vilas County Sheriff's Department about two years ago.
