A Vigo County man died as a result of injuries sustained during a two-vehicle accident Sunday evening.
According to information provided by E911 Dispatch at the Clay County Justice Center, the accident was reported around 5:25 p.m., Sunday.
Members of Clay County Sheriff's Department, Brazil City Police Department, Dick Johnson and Van Buren Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the accident scene located near the intersection of County Road 1200 North and State Road 59.
Clay County Coroner Joel Reinoehl was later notified once officials arrived on the scene.
According to Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton, the accident occurred when the driver of a motorcycle heading north struck a passenger car crossing SR 59 in the rear passenger side.
Heaton said the driver, who was not wearing a helmet, was ejected from the motorcycle.
The driver of the passenger vehicle, who, Heaton confirmed, passed a field sobriety test at the scene, reported no injuries.
An autopsy, which is a standard protocol during an investigation into an accident fatality, has been arranged today at Terre Haute Regional Hospital to help determine the cause of death.
The name of the victim, a Terre Haute man, was withheld during the early part of the investigation pending notification of the family.
