A Perry County man was killed in a one vehicle accident early Wednesday morning. The Lancaster Post of the Highway Patrol says it happened just before 5 a.m. on Bremen road east of Lake Road in Fairfield County. Troopers say that 25-year-old Shane Mehic of Junction City was driving west on Bremen Road, lost control of his vehicle, went off the roadway, became airborne and struck a creek bed. Mehic was pronounced dead at the scene by the Fairfield County Coroner’s Office. The Highway Patrol says speed and alcohol are suspected to be a factor in the accident. The incident remains under investigation.
