LEIGH — A rural Leigh man died Friday morning from injuries he sustained in a one-vehicle rollover along a county road.
According to the Colfax County Attorney's Office, 61-year-old Michael Hadcock was driving a 1990 Dodge pickup north on County Road 3 when he lost control of the vehicle, which left the roadway and rolled.
Hadcock was ejected from the vehicle and pinned under the pickup, the county attorney's office says.
Leigh Fire and Rescue transported Hadcock to Columbus Community Hospital, where he died about an hour later. He was alone in the vehicle.
The accident was reported shortly before 8:30 a.m. Friday. It occurred between County Roads M and N, about halfway between Leigh and Richland.
Authorities believe Hadcock was not wearing a seat belt, according to the county attorney's office, which says alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the accident.
