Roy Rogers Irvin, 73, of Somerville was found dead in his wrecked pickup truck on Tues., July 24, on West Point Road in Union Hill, a short distance from his home.

Irvin was found behind the steering wheel of his late model pickup not wearing a seat belt. He was pronounced dead by Morgan County Coroner Jeff Chunn.

Chunn said the truck ran off the road and crashed into a creek bank.

“He (Irvin) was either already dead or suffering from cardiac problems when the wreck occurred,” Chunn said.

The incident occurred less that a quarter of a mile from Irvin’s driveway. He was pulling a trailer loaded with a lawn mower.
