REEVES COUNTY – A Pecos man is dead following a morning rollover accident in Reeves County.
The accident happened Sunday just after 8:30 a.m. on County Road 420, about six miles northeast of Pecos.
DPS Troopers tell NewsWest 9, a 2005 Ford Expedition was traveling north on County Road 420 when the vehicle veered off the roadway and back onto the roadway.
That's when the driver took faulty evasive action and the vehicle began to skid into a barrow ditch and later rolled.
Officials say the driver, Robert Vasquez, 22, of Pecos, Texas, was not wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected from the vehicle.
Vasquez was pronounced dead at the scene.
