INEZ - A 25-year-old Victoria man died early Friday morning in a one-vehicle rollover near Inez.

Larry Guerrero, 25, of Victoria, died about 2 a.m. when he was ejected from his 2001 Honda on U.S. Highway 59 North at Midway Road, DPS Trooper Gerald Bryant said.

Guerrero was driving north on U.S. 59 about 1:45 a.m. when he attempted to pass a tractor-trailer by switching to the inside lane, Bryant said.

He entered the center median, overcorrected and then overturned. The car flipped over several times, coming to rest in a ditch next to the railroad track, Bryant said.

Guerrero was not wearing a seatbelt.

Guerrero was transported to Artero Memorial Chapel. Trooper David Macaulay investigated the wreck.
