EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Eugene police say a body was found in heavy brush hours after a rollover crash in which the suspected drunken driver said he was not carrying any passengers.

Police spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin says the Kia sedan driven by a 22-year-old man rolled off the road at 2:30 a.m. Friday. The man told officers he had been driving alone.

After sunrise, a woman walking near the area noticed a hand poking out of the brush. Police responded and found the body.

McLaughlin said investigators determined the deceased person had been a passenger in the vehicle.

McLaughlin says the suspect has so far only been cited for drunken driving.
