Fatal accident in Crawford County under investigation

Local News

What was first reported to be a crash is now a death investigation.

Firefighters were called to the 14000 block of Pont Road in Crawford County around 6:15 last night.  According to police, a pick-up truck was found about 200 yards off the road, with the male driver dead at the scene.

Crawford County Coroner Scott Schell says it appears to be a medical situation, but he’ll run some tests before making a final determination.  Witnesses said the driver got out, took off his coat, got back in, and that’s when the truck went backward, coming to rest in a swamp.
