A St. Paul man died in a late night Saturday car crash that was discovered hours later.
Shelbyville Police were called to 2200 North Riley Highway about 2:00 am Sunday. The driver of a 2002 Ford Explorer was reported to be dead at the scene.
The accident report shows that the vehicle, driven by Jeffrey Holt, 61, of St. Paul, went off North Riley Highway just south of Intelliplex Drive. It then traveled over a ditch before striking some bushes. The vehicle continued on through a fence owned by Ashford Place, through the Ashford Place parking lot and hit an unoccupied, parked bus. The bus and the vehicle sustained heavy damage.
It appears the accident happened over two hours before being discovered. A nearby resident reported hearing a loud noise outside of his residence about 11:30 pm Saturday.
