An accident early Sunday in rural Alton has claimed the life of a local chiropractor.  31 year old Eric Dixon of Holiday Shores was killed in the single vehicle crash on Seminary Road at Black Creek.  Dixon operated Accelerate: Health and Fitness Consulting in Edwardsville.

Alton Police investigated the crash after someone walking their dog discovered the accident early Sunday morning.  It’s believed the accident took place several hours earlier after police said it appears the vehicle left Seminary Road, struck a utility pole, and ended up in Black Creek.   The Madison County Corner’s Office will conduct toxicology testing as part of the investigation.
