(Note: Here is an article from The Alton Telegraph Newspaper in Alton, IL regarding the death of Clifford and Marilyn (Baker) Kraushaar's daughter Kimberley (Kraushaar) Dixon's husband Melvin L. Dixon) -------

Driver found dead after crash, possible medical cause - September 21, 2011 4:07 PM STAFF REPORT - The Telegraph - OTTERVILLE - Police are looking at a potential medical cause in the death of a man involved in a single-vehicle rollover crash early Wednesday morning. The driver was identified as Melvin L. Dixon, 66, of Otterville. He was pronounced dead at 6:21 a.m. "The death does not appear to be caused by the crash itself, because it was such a low-speed crash," said Master Trooper Doug Francis of Illinois State Police District 18 in Litchfield. The investigation will continue to determine whether injuries contributed to the death, he said. The 2000 Jeep Cherokee overturned onto its side after going out of control, he said. The incident likely occurred several minutes before it was reported to authorities. The QEM Fire Protection District was dispatched about 6 a.m. to Otterville Road, about one-half-mile north of Otterville (just south of Dabbs Road). A coroner's official said he was paged out by the Jersey County Sheriff's Department about 5:50 a.m. Later, he was told by the victim's wife that Dixon had left his home, which is a short distance from the scene, about 5 a.m. A deputy said extrication was required. The victim was not wearing his seat belt, police said. Evidence showed the vehicle left the road to the east and went into a ditch, traveling for approximately 120 feet. It then struck an embankment and turned over onto its roof. Dixon was pronounced dead at the scene by a coroner's deputy. The victim suffered head and chest trauma, the coroner's official said. Some of the basic questions in the case may never be answered. No autopsy was performed and no inquest is likely, according to the Coroner's Office.
