A Kouts man died Monday in a one-vehicle accident on Ind. 8 in Pleasant Township, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police said.

The victim was identified as Danny G. Shelton Jr., 35.

According to police, at 1:45 p.m. Shelton was eastbound on Ind. 8 when, in the area of C.R. 30E, he left the roadway to the south for unknown reasons and struck a tree.

Shelton was pronounced dead at the scene by the Coroner’s Office.

Police said that Shelton was not wearing a seatbelt but that his airbags did deploy.

Coroner Chuck Harris told the Chesterton Tribune that an autopsy and toxicology screen would be performed today. “At this time a cause and manner of death have yet to be determined,” he said.
