Missing man found dead under overturned vehicle

A 49-year-old man reported missing by his family Monday night has been found dead beneath his overturned vehicle. The vehicle was found beneath a bridge over Little River in southern Bell County. 

DPS Trooper D.L. Wilson says Thomas Eugene Tircuit was pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace Don Engleking.

Trooper Wilson says it appears Tircuit was driving westbound in a yellow 2006 Jeep Wrangler on Sunshine Road when he drifted off the road, struck the end of the bridge and rolled into water. 

Tircuit was spotted Tuesday morning by workers with a Bell County Road and Bridge crew.
