VINCENNES — A Knox County man was killed in an off-road vehicle crash late Saturday in Vincennes.

Knox County dispatchers received a 911 call at 11:23 p.m. about an ORV crash on Deer Trail north of Lafferty Road in Vincennes.

An initial investigation by Department of Natural Resources conservation officers determined a side-by-side ORV operated by William K. Webb, 56, Vincennes, was northbound on Deer Trail when it left the gravel drive and overturned. Webb was ejected and pinned beneath the vehicle.

Webb was transported by ambulance to Good Samaritan Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Conservation officers said he was not wearing a helmet or protective riding gear at the time of the accident.

An autopsy is planned and the investigation is ongoing.
