Authorities are investigating the death of a Yankton, South Dakota man in a car crash that appears to have happened several days before the wreckage was discovered.

On Sunday, a farmer found the wrecked Honda Accord in a ravine along U.S. Highway 81 three miles north of Yankton.  The body of 52-year old Paul Weidemann was found inside the car, seatbelt fastened.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol says evidence indicates the car went off the southbound lane, rolled down a hillside and into a ravine that is not readily visible from the roadway.

The Yankton County Sheriff's Office, Yankton County Fire Department and the Yankton County Coroner assisted at the scene.
