According to officers, it was a passerby that noticed Snell’s vehicle crashed off Paris Pike. The driver tells investigators there was a glare off a broken headlight that drew their attention to the crash and officers say when they arrived Snell was still alive, but in critical condition.

He was taken to the hospital where he died from his injuries. The coroner says Snell’s next-of-kin hasn’t been found so they need your help doing so. If you have any information or know Leo Snell, please contact the coroner’s office
