SYCAMORE – A Sycamore man died Saturday after being ejected from his Corvette in a single-vehicle crash.

Ryan T. Ahle, 23, of Sycamore, was headed south on New Lebanon Road in a 2008 Chevrolet Corvette when he lost control of his vehicle south of the intersection at Derbyline Road, left the roadway and rolled over, said DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Tony Grum.

Ahle, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene by the DeKalb County coroner. The crash occurred about 1:35 p.m. Saturday.

Grum said alcohol is not believed to have been a factor, and the death likely was caused by speeding and failure to wear a seat belt. The crash remains under investigation by the sheriff’s office and DeKalb County Coroner’s Office.
