Zachary Smith, 25, died early Saturday morning after coming in contact with a live electrical wire. 

Andrea Goodson, Odessa public information officer, said the incident happened as Smith was driving his truck on the 600 block of East 91st Street.

Smith then got out of his vehicle, coming into contact with a live power line, causing his death at the scene of the incident. 

No one was in the vehicle with Smith at the time.
