SAINT JOE – Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating an off-road vehicle accident that occurred in the area of the 5000 block of CR 75A in DeKalb County.
At 2:58 p.m., 57-year-old Jeffery Lepper of Saint Joe was operating a 2008 Polaris Sportsman 500 on C.R. 75A when, for an unknown reason, he left the roadway and struck a split-rail fence and then a tree. The Polaris then rolled, pinning Lepper underneath it.
Lepper was treated on-scene by medical personnel and then transported by ambulance for treatment of his injuries. Lepper was not wearing a helmet or protective riding gear, and alcohol is believed to be a factor in this accident.
