CRAWFORD CO., Ill. - Crawford County Coroner Earl Deckard is investigating the accident that occurred this weekend, claiming the life of a West York man.

Deckard said that Alan B. Waggoner, 61, of that north Crawford County community, was fatally injured in a single-car crash on County Road 1500 E, South of County Road 1900 N that occurred Saturday, March 10, at approximately 11:30 a.m.

Waggoner was northbound out of Hutsonville in a 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo traveling at a high rate of speed when he drove off the roadway and struck a power pole. The vehicle continued north, at which time, Deckard said, it appeared the vehicle rolled multiple times before coming to rest in a field.

Deckard was called to the scene, and pronounced Waggoner, the sole occupant of the vehicle, was pronounced dead.

An autopsy was performed this morning (Monday, March 12), at Terre Haute Regional Hospital in Indiana. Deckard said the autopsy report, as well as toxicology results, are pending.

The crash is being investigated by the Crawford County Coroner's Office and the Crawford County Sheriff's Office.
