CHARLESTOWN, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a southeastern Indiana man died after driving his truck into a flooded area near a bridge.

Clark County Coroner Terry Conway said an autopsy Wednesday showed the cause of death for 67-year-old Edwin Flaherty was drowning. The Clark County Sheriff’s Office said Flaherty’s body was found about 8 p.m. Tuesday floating in a creek next to his truck in Charlestown, about 15 miles northeast of Louisville, Kentucky.

The News and Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1M6gr6y ) another passer-by had reported seeing the truck in the creek earlier in the day, but responding officers were not able to locate the truck. Clark County Sheriff’s Office Detective Scottie Maples said the area is notorious for flooding.
