The LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department investigated a one-vehicle accident on July 18.

According to the police report, Gary Keck Jr., 34, of Mongo was driving eastbound on CR 300N shortly before 8 p.m. when his vehicle crested a hill at CR 900E and became airborne. When Keck’s vehicle came back into contact with the road, Keck lost control of it. The vehicle left the roadway and rolled over several times.

Keck was pinned to the vehicle. After being extricated, he was transported to Parkview LaGrange Hospital then flown by Samaritan helicopter to Parkview Regional, where he was pronounced dead.

High speed was a factor in the crash.
