A Harrellsville man died in a single-vehicle crash outside Enfield this afternoon.

Trooper T.D. “Bo” Forsht of the state Highway Patrol said Larry Mitchell, 66, was traveling north on Highway 301 shortly after 1 p.m.

Forsht said the man was a approximately a half-mile north of Enfield when he partially traveled off the right side of the roadway in his vehicle. He overcorrected the vehicle, came back on the roadway and his vehicle overturned, colliding with a bridge on the west side of Highway 301. The vehicle struck the concrete bridge rails.

The trooper said there was no evidence of excessive speed or driver inattention. The preliminary investigation does show Mitchell was not wearing a seatbelt.

Forsht said the main contributing factor was running off the road, overcorrecting and the vehicle overturning.

He said he is still investigating to determine whether the man had a preexisting medical condition.
