A Pittsview, Ala., man died early Sunday after he was ejected from his truck in a one-vehicle wreck, authorities said.
Mike Howard, 49, was driving a pickup truck on Alabama 165 near the entrance to Fort Benning when the wreck happened, Russell County Coroner Arthur Sumbry Jr. said.
“The vehicle flipped over several times,” Sumbry said an Alabama State Trooper told him. “Speed is considered to be a factor.”
At some point, Howard was thrown from his truck, the coroner said.
Never miss a local story.
Howard was taken to The Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 3:38 a.m., Sumbry added.
