Metro police responding to a call of a car in a ditch Wednesday night in a wooded area at 50 Vaughn Road in Edwin Warner Park found the body of 51-year-old George McCabe.

So far police have not determined why McCabe’s vehicle left the road before hitting several trees. McCabe, of River Road Pike, was not wearing his seat belt, according to police.
The medical examiner’s office will perform an autopsy to determine whether a medical issue may have contributed to McCabe’s death. Police said there was no evidence of alcohol involvement at the scene.
