Gregory Traugott, 63, of Pipe Creek, died in a vehicle accident on Highway 16 that occurred Thursday, Jan. 15.
The accident happened at 3:30 pm near Pipe Creek.
Traugott was traveling south on 16 in clear and dry conditions when his 2001 Honda CR4 veered off the roadway to the right.
The vehicle continued traveling off the roadway with no evidence of braking, veered off a concrete culvert, and went airborne. It subsequently crashed into a concrete wall and came to rest against a fence line.
Traugott was pronounced dead at the scene by a Justice of the Peace.
The investigation into the accident is on-going.
