A Trafalgar man was killed Wednesday after being thrown from a pickup truck in an accident in Johnson County.
Brian Poe of Trafalgar died at the scene of the accident on Johnson County Road 300S at about 2 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Johnson County Sheriff's Department.
The driver, Devin Fleener, 18, of Martinsville, was charged with being a minor in possession of alcohol.
Johnson County Sheriff Dog Cox said there was initially some confusion over which of the men was actually driving at the time of the accident. Fleener allegedly told deputies that Poe was driving but changed his story at the sheriff's department, Cox said.
Cox said investigators are waiting for results from drug and alcohol tests on Fleener to come back before passing the information on to the prosecutor's office.
