A Wilson man died Saturday in a single-vehicle crash on American Legion Road, according to the state Highway Patrol.

Trooper T.J. Blount said James Tyson, 59, was traveling west when he drifted to the right and his vehicle struck a mailbox. He then crossed the centerline where his vehicle struck a ditch and collided with a tree.

Blount said Tyson was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, which occurred around 12:30 p.m. about a half-mile from Highway 125.

Blount said contributing factors include overcorrection and perhaps minor speed.
