WHITE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — White County Sheriff Bill Brooks found a man dead inside a crashed truck on his way to work Friday.

Sometime between midnight and 1 a.m., Jeffrey D. Glotzbach of Oxford flipped his truck on U.S. 24 just east of 300 West. That's in rural White County.

Deputies believe it went off the road, then the 61-year-old overcorrected and crossed the center line. The truck then rolled and landed in a ditch.

Brooks found the truck about 7:30 a.m. He said similar things happened during his 35 years with Indiana State Police, but this time it was much more personal.

"Usually what goes through your mind is you hope it's somebody you don't know because it's rural," said Brooks. "I've lived here my whole life. Unfortunately I did know the person."

Investigators are still trying to figure out what caused Glotzbach to crash.
