South Bend man dies in head-on collision


The St. Joseph County Sheriff's Department says a 57-year-old South Bend man was killed in head-on collision Saturday night.

Police say Patrick Beecher appeared to be driving on the wrong side of the road at the intersection of US 20 and Poppy Road.

That's when he collided with another vehicle.

Beecher was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 22-year-old New Carlisle, wasn't hurt.

Police believe alcohol could have been a factor in the crash, however, investigators are waiting on toxicology reports.
