LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Shelbyville man was killed in a single-vehicle crash involving a 1996 Dodge Caravan late Sunday.

According to police, 25-year-old Javier Flores Preciado was northbound in the 3000 block of Taylorsville Road when he apparently ran off the right side of the roadway. As he tried to bring the vehicle back onto the road, he overcorrected and collided with several trees.

Preciado was not wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Officers do not believe alcohol or drugs were involved in the crash.

The accident is under investigation by the Shelby County Sheriff's Office accident reconstruction unit.
