A Grayson County man who died in a car crash in Ohio County on Sunday night, June 10, was identified five days after the accident, according to the Ohio County Coroner.

40-year-old Dexter Coleman England, Jr., of Falls of Rough, was reportedly travelling eastbound on Highway 54 in Fordsville at a high rate of speed when the 1993 Toyota truck he was operating left the roadway and hit two sets of trees before becoming engulfed in flames.

Once first responders had extinguished the fire, England was pulled from the vehicle. A press release stated, however, that by this point, he was “burned beyond recognition,” and no positive identification was able to be made until Friday, June 15.

The Coroner, Larry Bevil, along with the Ohio County Sheriff’s Department worked diligently to identify the crash victim, but were slowed by the nature of the accident, which rendered some traditional identification techniques unusable.

Dexter Coleman England, Jr., age 40, of Falls of Rough, KY, passed away Sunday, June 10, 2012, in Fordsville, Kentucky.

He was born on March, 21 1972, in Jefferson County, Kentucky, the son of Dexter Coleman England, Sr. and the late Connie Reed England. He was a flooring specialist and was saved and baptized at Falls of Rough Baptist Church.

He is survived by one daughter, Morgan Brooke Swift, of Leitchfield, KY, one son, Chandler Edmond Cole England, of Leitchfield, KY, one brother, Brian Coleman England of Falls of Rough, KY, two sisters, Kimberly Yvonne Colston, of Falls of Rough, KY and Donna Michele England, of Leitchfield and a half-brother, Kerry Coleman Clifford, of Leitchfield, KY.

Other than his mother, he was preceded in death by a brother, Stephen Todd England.

A Celebration of a Life Service was held Saturday, June 16, 2012 at the Dermitt Funeral Home in Leitchfield. A Graveside Service followed at the England Cemetery.
