On July 29, 2012, at about 1840 hours, the Sheriff's Office responded to a single vehicle accident in the 8000 block of Melqua Road.

Responders found the driver and only occupant of the vehicle deceased at the scene. Apparently the man had been traveling northwest on Melqua Road in a 2008 Jeep when the vehicle crossed into the opposite lane and drove into the ditch. The vehicle struck a tree which ejected the driver.

The driver was not wearing a seat belt and it is not know if alcohol was a factor.

The deceased name is not being released because next of kin has not been notified.
