MACON COUNTY, Ill. (WAND) - A man who was found dead after Macon County Sheriff's deputies said he was ejected after his vehicle flipped multiple times Wednesday morning has been identified. 

Deputies responded to the single vehicle accident on Andrew Street Road near the intersection of Riley Road around 8:15 a.m. 

They found a truck on the south side of Andrew Street Road in a field.  The vehicle appeared to have flipped several times. 

A deceased man, identified by the coroner as Joseph D. Baietto, 32, was found about 60 feet from the vehicle after being ejected. 

There were no witnesses, and it is believed that the accident occurred shortly before passing motorists discovered it.
