Pawnee, Illinois – At 7:08 a.m., Sangamon County Central Dispatch received a 911 call reporting an overturned truck in the 12700 block of Pawnee Road.

Upon arrival, deputies located a 29-year-old male, the sole occupant of the vehicle, who was partially ejected from the 2007 GMC truck. American Ambulance and Pawnee EMS arrived on the scene and pronounced the male subject deceased.

Sangamon County Sheriff Jack Campbell stated that the initial investigation by the Sheriff’s Office indicates the truck was traveling northbound, left the roadway on the east side, and hit a culvert, causing the vehicle to flip.
