It appears speed was a factor in a deadly accident in Jackson County, West Virginia.
Sheriff's Deputies say James Holbert Smith was driving north on Route 62, just outside Ripley when he lost control of his truck and hit an embankment. Deputies say the truck then flipped and landed in the southbound lane.
Witnesses told investigators James was driving at a high rate of speed just before the crash.
James was 51-years-old and from Ripley. No other cars were involved in the accident.
