A Cassville man was found dead in his van early Monday morning.
Just after midnight, the Grant County Sheriff’s Department was notified of a single vehicle in a ditch in the 700 block of Denniston Street in Cassville. The caller stated the driver was unresponsive. When the Cassville EMS and Fire Departments arrived on the scene, they found the man, Patrick Ploessl (age 51), to be deceased.
The initial investigation showed the vehicle left the road and entered the drainage ditch and struck the bank.
The Grant County Coroner determined that Ploessl was deceased due to medical issues prior to his vehicle entering the ditch.
