Troy Cormier, 54, was found dead in his pickup truck just hours after he was reported missing.
Officials say Cormier had set out Saturday to visit relatives in North Brookfield, Massachusetts. Family members called police after Cormier did not arrive when expected.
The crumpled remains of Cormier's Ford pickup truck were found Sunday morning. The truck had gone off Route 31, down an embankment and into a wooded area, where it struck a tree. According to the Worcester Telegraph, police are not yet sure what caused him to leave the roadway.
