A Greensburg man was killed in a one-vehicle crash Wednesday morning on I-74 in Decatur County. Indiana State Police say they were called to the eastbound lanes of the interstate near the 128 mile marker at about 3:30 a.m.

ISP say the initial investigation indicated that a Jeep Wrangler driven by 58-year-ol Rickie A. Meece was traveling eastbound on I-74 when it left the south side of the roadway and struck a guardrail. After striking the guardrail, the vehicle rolled multiple times before coming to stop off the roadway.

Meece was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Decatur County Coroner’s Office. Authorities say he was not properly restrained at the time of the crash.

Authorities say that toxicology tests are pending, although drugs and alcohol are not suspected to be factors at this time.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
