Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies discovered the body of a dead man off the side of State Road 56 on Tuesday just east of Brooksburg.

Sheriff John Wallace said the man died in an apparent motorcycle accident, and the vehicle was found close to the man's body.

Officials are working to identify the man, and his family has not yet been notified, Wallace said.

Indiana State Police crash reconstructionists assisted at the scene along with the Switzerland County Sheriff's Office.
