The Hopkins County Sheriff's Office says one man died Monday in a crash on I-69 after losing control of his vehicle on the icy road.

According to HCSO, deputies responded to a rollover crash at the 101 mile marker on I-69 Monday around 6:30 p.m.

The sheriff's office says that the crash occurred when the vehicle was traveling north on I-69. The roadway was iced over and the driver lost control of the vehicle, HCSO says.

As the vehicle lost control, it exited the right side of the roadway and struck a rock wall. The sheriff's office says it then overturned and came to a final rest on its left side.

The male driver was pronounced dead at the scene by the Hopkins County Coroner while the passenger was not injured. 

According to HCSO, neither occupant was wearing a seat belt when the accident occurred.

The Charleston Fire Department, Medcenter Ambulance Service, Dawson Springs Police, and Kentucky State Police assisted deputies.
