The weekend death of a 43-year-old Charles City man is under investigation. The Floyd County Sheriff’s Department says they were dispatched to the 32-hundred block of U.S. Highway 18 about four miles east of Charles City at about 1 o’clock Sunday morning after someone had called in saying they saw a vehicle in a field with its lights on.
A deputy discovered the man unresponsive in the driver’s seat and called an ambulance, and the man was taken to the Floyd County Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. The man’s identity is not being released at this time until all relatives have been notified. The Floyd County medical examiner will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
