A Texas man died from a one-vehicle accident early Saturday morning on U.S. Highway 70 north of Roswell.

The New Mexico State Police said that the initial investigation indicated a 2004 Toyota 4-Runner was traveling southwest on U.S. 70, also known as the Clovis Highway. For unknown reasons, the Toyota left the roadway into the center median, over-corrected and rolled.

The driver Antonio L. Oros, 35, of Eagle Pass, Texas, was ejected, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Police said that alcohol does not appear to be a contributing factor to the crash but that seat belts do not appear to have been properly utilized. The crash is still under investigation and the State Police indicated that no additional information is available.
