PAYNE COUNTY, Oklahoma -- A city employee discovered Wednesday a body inside a crashed car in Payne County.

The employee spotted the car while driving along Highway 177, just one mile south of Stillwater.  Police were called to the scene.

The car was located down a ravine, nose down. Police believe the driver went off the road just north of the bridge, then down the creek bed, flipping over the creek. The car is resting on its hood.

Police are not sure how long it's been here but said the body inside the car is decomposing.
