Late Wednesday afternoon the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call of a vehicle rollover.

Emergency crews responded to the intersection of Loran Road and Switzer Road, north of Mt. Carroll.  There they located a Ford F-150 truck off the roadway.

It appears to investigators the truck being operated by 62 year old Mitchell Timm of Mt. Carroll was headed south on Loran Road and failed to negotiate a curve.  The truck then struck an embankment and fence before overturning.  Timm was pronounced dead at the scene by the Carroll County Coroner’s Office.

The accident remains under investigation by the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department.
