A Roanoke Rapids man died Friday morning in a single-vehicle crash on Carolina Rest Home Road.

Trooper W.S. Smith of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol said Maurice Sesson, 32, was traveling east on the road when he came into a curve. He overcorrected, traveled off the roadway to the left and struck a ditch. The vehicle overturned multiple times before ejecting the driver. The man was not wearing a seatbelt.

Smith said speed was a contributing factor in the crash, which occurred shortly before 3:30 a.m.

Impairment is unknown at this time.
