A Rocky Mount man died Sunday morning in a single vehicle crash in the Scotland Neck area, according to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.

Trooper T.D. “Bo” Forsht said Lajuane M. Baker, 41, was traveling south on Highway 258 near the Edgecombe County line when he ran off the road to the right shortly after 10 a.m.

He came back onto the roadway, overcorrected and went back off the right side where his vehicle collided with a tree.

Forsht said excessive speed, failure to maintain lane control and overcorrection contributed to the crash.
