CLAYTON — State police are still trying to determine the cause of a fatal accident discovered early Sunday on Grindstone Island.

Frank W. Slate, 45, of 10963 N. Shore Road, Grindstone Island, was found dead in his 1993 Dodge Dakota pickup truck about 7 a.m.

Police said they believe that sometime about 1:30 a.m., Mr. Slate lost control of the truck, which left the right side of Middle Road and struck two trees and a tree trunk, rolling over in the process before landing upright.

The incident is still being investigated, and police are awaiting the results of an autopsy.
