LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A man was found dead in the front seat of his sport utility vehicle that had landed in a Lancaster County creek after running off a road, authorities said.

The SUV was spotted in the creek south of Lincoln by a passer-by Saturday, and deputies discovered the body of Richard Felsing inside.

The 54-year-old crashed as he was headed to his home in Crete after a Lincoln party Friday night, deputies said. He was westbound on Saltillo Road when the SUV went out of control. It ran off the roadway and fell about 10 feet (3 meters) into the creek bed, deputies said.
