(KAKE) -

Authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body was found under a rural southeast Kansas bridge.

The Crawford County Sheriff's Office is reporting 62-year-old Robert Boyer was found near a bridge in rural Girard. Deputies said his pickup truck hit a fence before straddling the edge of a concrete bridge.

Investigators believe Boyer fell six-feet to the bottom of the creek when he got out of the truck. Deputies say Boyer may have crawled up the embankment before falling into the creek again.

It's unclear how he left the roadway.
