Central Indiana man dies in off-road vehicle accident

DANVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A central Indiana man died April 10 from injuries he suffered when he was thrown from his off-road vehicle, conservation officers said.

Chase Lynch, 20, of Danville, died at IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, officers said.

He was found unresponsive about 10 p.m. April 9 on private property along U.S. 36 near Danville, west of Indianapolis.

The ORV that Lynch was operating struck a ditch in a cornfield, causing the vehicle to flip and eject Lynch, officers said.

Lynch was not wearing a helmet at the time.
