The Ohio County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a single vehicle accident that led to the death of a Rising Sun man.
Around 12:23 on Thursday afternoon (9/17/15), deputies responded to State Rte. 56 north for the report of an accident. Upon arrival, Ohio County EMS immediately began CPR on the driver, and only occupant of the vehicle, identified as 67 year old Donald Lillie of Rising Sun.
