Deputies were called shortly before 9 a.m. Saturday to Perch Lake Road in the Town of Athelstane, for a report of one male inside a vehicle which was on its side, the news release said.

The investigation shows Robert G. Perry, of Amberg, was driving west on Perch Lake Road near Nelson Road when the vehicle failed to negotiate a corner, and went off the road, the news release said.
