Authorities in western Iowa found a southeast Nebraska man dead inside his overturned car this weekend.

The Shelby County Sheriff's Department found 21-year-old Tanner Merz' 2003 Ford Taurus upside down in a ditch along a county road south of Irwin Saturday morning.

Authorities say the car was sitting on its roof. Paramedics worked to extract the Falls City, Nebraska man from his car, but Merz died at the scene.

Investigators say Merz was driving north when he lost control of his vehicle.
