“Boston Legal” actor Justin Mentell‘s death was initially reported by a motorist who came upon the wreckage of a Jeep crashed down an embankment in Iowa County, Wisconsin on Monday.
The caller described what he saw to the 911 operator (listen here).
“I just came upon it; it looks like it’s been here a while,” the motorist told the 911 operator. “Looks like one person dead.”
An Iowa County sheriff told Radar Online.com that the actor may have fallen asleep at the wheel.
“We don’t believe that alcohol was a factor in the incident; there was no evidence of that here,” the officer explained.
