An elderly Neoga man was killed in a single-vehicle crash Saturday morning.

State police say a pickup truck driven by 81-year-old Henry Overmyer of Neoga ran off US 45 at the junction with Illinois 121 north of Neoga at 11am Saturday.  The pickup ran through a ditch, across Route 121 and through another ditch before striking a tree.

Overmyer was pronounced dead at the scene by the Cumberland County Coroner.
