Initial investigations found that Adam Bement, 36, was driving his Ford F350 northwest when he approached a curve, crossed the center line, left the road and hit a tree which caused the truck to flip.

Bement was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Sheriff Frank Loop.

Loop said due to the severe structural damage to the truck, speed may have been a factor in the crash.

The coroner is expected to complete a toxicology report.
