Man dies after jumping from vehicle


The Kosciusko County Coroner says a Warsaw man who jumped from a moving vehicle in January has died.

It happened in Nappanee on County Road 800 West just south of County Road 850 North.

Twenty-one year old Jerry Lee Charles Belcher of Warsaw was flown to the hospital.

He died two months later on March 25th at Lutheran Hospital.

Police say, Belcher had been a passenger in a Dodge Ram Quad Cab pickup truck driven by his father, Johnny L. Belcher, 41, Warsaw. 

As they were traveling to work, both men had entered into a verbal argument that became steadily intense. 

While traveling northbound on County Road 800 West, Jerry Belcher suddenly opened the front passenger side door of the pickup truck and jumped from the vehicle.
