ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say a 32-year-old Mentasta man has died in a single-vehicle crash on the Old Richardson Highway.

Charles David III was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash Thursday at Copper Center.

Troopers say David was heading north near mile 105 of the highway when his Chevrolet Monte Carlo left the roadway and overturned.

David was ejected. Troopers say it doesn't appear a seatbelt was used. Road conditions were dry at the time of the crash.

The state medical examiner's office will conduct an autopsy.
