Update: The man who died was Ricky Lee Claeys.

A 47-year-old man died in a Benton County car crash Friday morning.

The Benton County Sheriff's Office says it found a pickup truck on its side in a ditch around 6 a.m. on 70th St near Keystone.

The driver was dead when deputies arrived. He was the only person in the vehicle and no  other cars were involved in the crash.

Investigators say it appears that the driver drifted across the road and overcorrected, ending in the ditch. He was not wearing a seatbelt.

The investigation is ongoing. The driver's name has not been released.
