SOLON SPRINGS — A town of Bennett man was killed in a one-vehicle rollover in the village of Solon Springs Saturday, Oct. 15.

Jordon Thorssen, 21, was found deceased under his vehicle after crashing near 10777 S. Business 53, according to Douglas County Sheriff’s Office reports.

Deputies responded to the site of the crash at 9:17 p.m. Saturday. Thorssen was pronounced dead at the scene.

An investigation of the crash indicated that Thorssen was traveling northbound on Business Highway 53 near 1077 S. Business 53, according to reports. Skid marks showed a hard braking and then the vehicle swerved into the ditch on the eastbound side of the road. It then appeared to spin sideways and roll, ejecting Thorssen.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
