An early Wednesday morning incident claimed the life of a Tyler man when his vehicle rolled into a field north of the city.

Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Jean Dark said 24-year-old Keith Williams was pronounced dead at the scene after he lost control of his 2009 Nissan Altima on Farm-to-Market Road 14, two miles north of Tyler.

Trooper Dark said Williams apparently lost control of his vehicle, overcorrected and crossed back in the opposite lane where the vehicle left the roadway and then rolled into the field.

The accident occurred around 1 a.m.

There were no other injuries in the one vehicle accident.
