Resident dies after one-car crash

SOUTHGATE — Police still are awaiting the final medical report on a 76-year-old resident who died Wednesday after a one-car accident on North Line Road.

Eugene Icenogle was headed east on North Line at Reeck Road in his Buick LeSabre when it left the roadway, glanced off a stone wall and struck a tree on the driver’s side, tearing off the fender and wheel.

“It does not appear to be any type of hazardous driving that caused the accident,” Detective Sgt. Tim Scott said.

Police said Icenogle did not appear to have been killed by the crash and believe the accident and his death may have been caused by some type of medical reaction.

Scott said a medical examination is being conducted to determine the cause of death.
