Early yesterday morning, Yankton Police along with Yankton Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to a car in Marne Creek, just east of 4th and Burleigh.  Police Chief Brian Paulsen says a single male victim, identified as 30 year old Joshua Paul Scott was found dead outside the vehicle. The car had extensive damage to it after going airborne over the creek and striking the embankment on the East side.  Estimated speed when the vehicle went airborne was 65 MPH in a 30 MPH zone. Paulsen says an autopsy will be conducted. The accident was reported to police by a jogger on the Auld-Brokaw Trail about 6:15.

This will be an ongoing investigation and YPD will be assisted by the South Dakota Highway Patrol.
