A single-vehicle accident in rural Clay County Thursday evening resulted in the death of one person.
Details were sketchy at press time, but Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton told The Brazil Times the department was investigating the accident, which took place on Poland/Bowling Green Road, at approximately 7:40 p.m.
According to Heaton, it appeared the vehicle, a pickup truck, went off the side of the road and struck a tree.
Heaton said it was believed the vehicle continued before striking another tree and flipping onto the driver's side.
Heaton said there were only two occupants in the vehicle.
One of the occupants, who remained unidentified at press time pending family notification, was pronounced dead at the scene by Clay County Deputy Coroner Amy Solomon.
Heaton said the other occupant of the vehicle was transported to Methodist Hospital via Lifeline.
He said he was unsure of the type of injuries the transported occupant, who also remained unidentified pending family notification, had suffered.
Heaton said the accident is still under investigation.
Other agencies assisting at the scene included Indiana State Police, Clay County Search and Rescue, Poland Volunteer Fire Department, Bowling Green Volunteer Fire Department and TransCare.
