Conservation Officers investigating off-road vehicle accident with injuries in Dekalb County
Start Date: 8/15/2019
Event Description:

(Saint Joe) Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating an off-road vehicle (ORV) accident that occurred in the area of the 5000 block of CR 75A.

At 2:58 p.m., Jeffery Lepper, 57, of Saint Joe, was operating a 2008 Polaris Sportsman 500 on C.R. 75A when, for an unknown reason, he left the roadway and struck a split-rail fence and then a tree.  The ORV then rolled, pinning Lepper underneath it.

Lepper was treated on-scene by medical personnel and then transported by ambulance for treatment of his injuries.  Lepper was not wearing a helmet or protective riding gear, and alcohol is believed to be a factor in this accident.

All charges are merely accusations and defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

For more information on ORV safety, see offroad-ed.com/indiana

Conservation Officers were assisted on-scene by the Dekalb County Sheriff’s Department, Dekalb EMS, and the Concord Township Volunteer Fire Department.
