(DUBOIS CO.) - 18-year-old Theodore Boeglin of Terre Haute died in a single-vehicle accident reported Sunday evening near Jasper.

According to a Dubois County Sheriff's Department report, deputies were called to the crash scene at 6 p.m. in the 3400 block of County Road 125 East, northeast of Jasper.

Boeglin was driving a a 2003 Dodge Neon and went off the west side of the road and struck some landscaping stonework and then struck a utility pole. The pole was snapped and laying on the ground.

The Dodge was on its driver's side against the pole and an electric wire was exposed and other lines were down and across the vehicle.

Dubois Rural Electric employees were called to ensure the downed lines were not a threat to emergency personnel who needed to access the vehicle. After the lines were declared safe, the front seat passenger, 19-year-old Justin Wright of Jasper had to be freed from the vehicle and was transported to Memorial Hospital and then transferred to St. Mary's Medical Center where the driver died from injuries suffered in the accident.

Another passenger, 23-year-old Logan Williams of Jasper fled the scene into a nearby bean field towards a treeline.

Deputies searched the area but were unable to locate him. Police were later able to find Williams, who was not injured.

Police say speed and road conditions due to the weather are considered to have played a factor in the accident.

Officers located drug paraphernalia in the vehicle.

The accident is under investigation and the Dubois County Coroner's office did do toxicology testing and those reports are pending.
