MIDLAND COUNTY - The man killed in Midland County's first traffic fatality of the year has been identified.

55-year-old Shabbir Spall of Riverside, California died Friday morning.

The accident happened on I-20, just west of FM 1788.

DPS Troopers say Spall drifted off the road and flipped.

Right now, troopers do not believe alcohol played a role, but they did find some prescription drugs that can cause drowsiness.

They're waiting for autopsy results until they decide on the cause of the crash.
