JEFFERSON CO., Ind. (WHAS11) -- A Sunday morning crash in Jefferson County, Ind. has left one person injured and another dead.

Indiana State Police said around 3:25 a.m. a 2003 Suzuki SUV driven by 19-year-old Tre’ Colber of Madison was westbound on S.R. 256 when for unknown reasons the vehicle left the roadway and struck a traffic sign, then a utility pole and finally came to rest on its top.
