Ogle County Sheriff's police continue to investigate a single vehicle crash this week that claimed the life of a Byron man.
Pronounced dead at the scene was 60-year old David Garnhart.
The accident occurred Tuesday night a short timer after 8 in the 10,000 block of North Route 2. Sheriff's police say that Garnhart was driving his 1996 Dodge Dakota pick-up truck south bound when the vehicle left the highway and struck a tree. He had traveled about 225 feet in the ditch before the crash occurred.
Garnhart was then extricated from the truck by Byron Fire Department personnel and pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
The Winnebago County Sheriff's police assisted in the accident.
