[February 03, 2010]  DODGEVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- An actor who appeared on the TV show "Boston Legal" has been killed in an SUV crash in Wisconsin.

The Iowa County Sheriff's Department says Justin Mentell was killed when his SUV went down an embankment off Highway 39 near Blanchardville and hit two trees.

The crash was reported around 8:30 a.m. Monday.

The sheriff's department says the 27-year-old from Waukegan, Ill., wasn't wearing a seat belt.

Mentell portrayed attorney Garrett Wells on "Boston Legal" from 2005 to 2006. According to the film database, he also was Terrell in the 1999 Disney movie "G-Force."

The Web site says Mentell was a former member of the U.S. Junior National Speedskating team.

A message left with his agent wasn't immediately returned Tuesday.
