The Cass County sheriff says one man was killed Tuesday morning in a crash on Mason Street and Union Road, just off of U.S. 12.

Ice was a contributing factor in this rollover accident, according to Sheriff Rich Behnke.

The driver -- 48-year-old Daniel Staley of Elkhart -- was not wearing a seatbelt, says the sheriff. He was thrown from the vehicle.

There were no passengers.

As of 8 a.m. the sheriff said roads are still icy from overnight, so be cautious.

The crash is still under investigation.
