(SPENCER CO.) - Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating the death of a Spencer County Man who was found dead at the scene of an ORV accident Sunday evening.

60-year-old Jerome Meunier of Evanston was ejected from the ORV he was operating after it left the roadway and flipped over. He was found by another person passing by the location. It is unknown how long Meunier was there before he was found.

CPR was administered by first responders without success and Meunier was pronounced dead at the scene by the Spencer County Coroner's Office.
