— Green County authorities are investigating a death after a passing motorist found a man and a bicycle in a ditch at about 4 p.m. Thursday.

According to the Green County Sheriff’s Department:

Preliminary investigation indicates William C. McKee, 46, rural Brodhead, was towing a small trailer while bicycling downhill on Hoosier Road in Spring Grove Township.

It appears McKee lost control, left the roadway and fell off the bike, resulting in a fatal injury. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause and approximate time of death.

Hoosier Road is about one mile north of the state line in the southeast corner of Green County.
