From Local Sources
CHARLESTOWN — Authorities believe alcohol may have been a contributing factor in a fatal crash early Monday at Charlestown in Clark County.
Indiana State Police responded to the report of a vehicle in the tree line on the west side of Clark County Road 403 near Bethany Road at 12:45 a.m.
Police found a car had left the roadway, overturned and collided with a tree.
First responders immediately requested air medic helicopters and a local wrecker service until the number of occupants in the car could be determined. After turning the vehicle upright, officers discovered the driver was the sole occupant.
A preliminary investigation found the vehicle, a black, 2007 Ford Fusion, left the roadway for an unknown reason before overturning and coming to rest against a tree. The driver, Robert O. Sheckles, 35, Charlestown, was pronounced dead on the scene by the Clark County Coroner.
The crash remains under investigation but investigators believe alcohol may have been a contributing factor.
