ST. JOE, Ind. (WFFT) — A man was hurt after he drove an off-road vehicle into a fence and a tree.
It happened the 5000 block of County Road 75A just before 3 p.m.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources said Jeffery Lepper, 57, was on a four-wheeler when, for an unknown reason, he left the road and struck a split-rail fence and then a tree.
The vehicle then rolled, pinning Lepper underneath it, according to officers.
Lepper was treated on-scene by medical personnel and then taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment.
Conservation officers said Lepper was not wearing a helmet or protective riding gear, and alcohol is believed to be a factor.
