MODEL, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say a 21-year-old man has died after losing control of his vehicle on a southern Colorado highway. The Colorado State Patrol says the crash happened early Sunday morning on Highway 350.

According to a State Patrol statement, 21-year-old Dylan O’Connor from Model was headed east when his pickup went off the right side of the road.

Officials say O’Connor tried to return to the road but the truck rotated counter-clockwise, crossed the highway and overturned.

The truck then went down an embankment and came to rest on its roof.

The State Patrol says O’Connor was wearing a seat belt but died at the crash location.

The crash remains under investigation. Authorities say they do not believe alcohol or drug use contributed.
