Police: Missing Perry County man died in car crash

VICCO, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say they've found the body of an eastern Kentucky man last seen five days ago.

Troopers say 62-year-old Coy David Banks of Vicco appeared to have been driving a 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier when he lost control of the vehicle and traveled over an embankment, where the car overturned before coming to rest. Troopers say Banks was partially ejected from the vehicle, and did not appear to be wearing a seat belt.

Perry County Deputy Coroner John Collett pronounced Mr. Banks deceased at 4:15 p.m. Sunday. No foul play is suspected.

Banks had been reported missing by his wife on Wednesday.
