Police trying to determine when Sugarcreek crash happened

| Monday, Jan. 10, 2011

Investigators are seeking information to help determine the time of a fatal car crash this weekend in northern Armstrong County.

The body of Randal Anthony Stewart, 50, of East Franklin was found by a passer-by about 7:30 a.m. Sunday in a field along Route 268 in Sugarcreek, according to state police and Armstrong County Coroner Robert Bower.

Stewart apparently lost control of his 1996 Ford Focus just north of Fosters Mills Road, police said. His car rolled down a bank and Stewart, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the car.

Bower said Stewart was last seen alive about 11:40 p.m. Saturday. Anyone with information on the accident should call state police at 724-543-2011 or the coroner's office at 724-548-3281.

Bower said toxicology tests and an autopsy must be performed before he can determine the cause of death.
