Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating an off road vehicle crash that resulted in the death of 49 year old David Blessing of Tinley Park, Illinois. Shortly after midnight on June 30th, Indiana Conservation Officers were contacted by Starke County Dispatch after a passerby observed a 2017 Polaris side by side style off road vehicle on its side, with what appeared to be a person underneath it in the 5500 south block of 700 east. Responding officers from the Starke County Sheriff’s Office arrived on scene and found David Blessing to be deceased and requested Indiana Conservation Officers respond to the scene. It appears Blessing was traveling northbound, with the off road vehicle riding partly in the grass and partly in the roadway when he encountered a sudden drop off where a culvert crosses under the roadway. Upon encountering the drop off, the vehicle rolled onto its side.
