Man found dead at construction site believed to be driver of crashed vehicle

A man was found dead at a construction area on the west side of Greenfield. Police say he may be the driver involved in an accident the day before.

Greenfield police detectives and the Hancock County Fatal Accident Crash Team are investigating after the man was found by workers at the construction site on Windswept Road.

While searching the area, officers realized that a crash had occurred about 4 a.m. Monday and no driver was located. The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department was investigating that crash.

Greenfield Police say that early evidence suggests the man discovered Tuesday morning was the driver from the crash. He was discovered about 600 yards from the crash site. Investigators say they have determined that it would not have been possible for anyone to see this man from the road or from where the vehicle was left abandoned.

The man’s identity will not be released until family is notified.  The crash remains under investigation.
