JACKSON COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man reported missing about a week ago was found in a crashed car.

West Virginia State Police tell WSAZ.com that Michael Staats was traveling along Route 68 north of Ravenswood when he lost control and went over a hill.

Troopers aren't sure exactly when the accident happened, but Staats wasn't discovered until Saturday morning.

Staats, 47, was from Parkersburg, W.Va.

Troopers say they believe speed played a factor in the crash.
