ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The son of Michigan coaching legend Bo Schembechler died in a weekend car crash in Idaho, officials said.
The body of Donald Schembechler, 48, was discovered Monday not far from his home in a rural area just outside Orofino, Idaho, said Rick Ohnsman, public information officer for the Idaho State Police.
"From what we can tell, the accident may have happened as early as Saturday morning," Ohnsman said.
It appeared that the vehicle Schembechler was driving went off a road overlooking the Clearwater River and onto a grassy embankment where it rolled over and Schembechler was ejected, Ohnsman said. The vehicle continued down the embankment and rolled off a cliff.
"Investigators are trying to determine now whether he died as a result of his injuries or from exposure after having been out there for a couple days," Ohnsman said.
