Alcohol, Drugs Not Factor In Fatal Marshall County Accident

The toxicology report has been received by the Marshall County coroner in the case of a double fatal accident that occurred June 28.

Coroner Bill Cleavenger said that 16-year-old Vincent Cody Poczik and 16-year-old Hunter Brandt of Plymouth were negative for both alcohol and drugs. Cleavenger said that this eliminates one element of the investigation. It was initially believed that speed was a factor in the accident, although that has not been confirmed.

On the evening of June 28, Poczik was driving his car on 12 B Road, east of Olive Trail, when the vehicle left the roadway, struck a guardrail and flipped end over end. Cleavenger said Poczik and Brandt were killed instantly.

The accident remains under investigation with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department.
