Bellmead, TX — Family and friends are mourning the loss on an 18 year-old TSTC student who died after rolling his pickup along I-35 Monday afternoon.
At 5:30 p.m., Bellmead Police and Bellmead Fire Personnel were dispatched to the 1500 block of South IH35 near Bellmead, Texas.
When officers and medical personal arrived, they saw a pickup truck rolled over on its hood.
The driver inside was non-responsive and not breathing.
The driver was later identified as Dylan Martin, a TSTC student from Leander, Texas.
Martin was pronounced dead on scene by Justice of the Peace Fernando Villarreal.
It was determined that his vehicle was driving south on Interstate 35 and was attempting to exit (at exit 338B) when the driver lost control of the vehicle.
The vehicle ran straight into a ditch embankment where it was found upside down.
The driver was the only occupant in the vehicle and was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
The cause of the crash is under investigation but speed was a contributing factor.
