A New Berlin man was killed in a single-vehicle accident early yesterday morning on the far west side of the Sangamon County village.

The Sangamon County Coroner’s Office says 39-year-old Kevin Becker was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident just after 4:45 a.m. yesterday.

Authorities say Becker’s vehicle left the roadway and rolled over near Route 54 and Waverly Road. The cause of the accident remains under investigation by the Sangamon County Sheriff’s Office and Sangamon County Coroner’s Office.

Autopsy results indicate Becker died of blunt force head trauma caused by the accident.

Nobody else was inside the vehicle.
