(Jefferson County, Ind.) - A 23-year-old Vevay man was found dead in his car hours after he had crashed.
Last Friday morning, Indiana State Police troopers found Dustin Spencer’s 1997 Ford Escort about 40 feet off of East Big Doe Run Road in Jefferson County.
Spencer was dead inside the overturned car, still belted in.
Troopers say Spencer had crashed several hours earlier, about 1:00 a.m., after going off the road, overcorrecting, then colliding with a tree.
State police say speed and alcohol were likely both factors in the deadly crash.
The crash remains under investigation.
