STARKE COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) - An Illinois man was killed after crashing an off road vehicle in Starke County over the weekend.

Just after midnight Saturday, police were called to the 5500 block of 700 East after someone spotted an off road vehicle on its side, with what appeared to be a person underneath. Officers found 49-year-old David Blessing dead.

Police say he was driving with the vehicle partly in the grass and partly in the roadway when there was a sudden drop off, causing the vehicle to roll onto its side.

The investigation is still on going.
