(KMOV)--The Madison County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal car crash that ended in a lake Saturday morning.

Authorities say that the Madison County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call around 12:30 a.m. reporting a single car crash in which the vehicle was overturned in Holiday Shores Lake.

When deputies arrived to the scene, a 2007 Jeep Liberty was found overturned in the lake off of St. James Dr.

The vehicle under carriage and tires were still visible in the water.

A passerby observed the vehicle in the water, but no witnesses to the accident were located.

Authorities say that it appears the vehicle was traveling northbound on St. James Dr. when it drove off the right side of the roadway and hit the rocky shore line causing the car to flip.

Members of the Holiday Shores Fire Department removed the driver, and single occupant, from the vehicle. The driver was unresponsive.

A member of the Madison County Coroner’s Office was called to the scene and pronounced the victim deceased.

The victim’s name has not been released.
