An 82-year-old Yoakum man died Tuesday afternoon after rolling his vehicle several times on state Highway 95.

Jimmy R. Smith was pronounced dead at 1:27 p.m. at Yoakum Community Hospital after Shiner Emergency Medical Services transported him from the crash site, a Department of Public Safety spokesman said.

Smith was driving south on state Highway 95 - north of Midway Road - when he ran off the road and in an attempt to correct, lost control of his vehicle and rolled about four times before coming to rest upside down, the crash report stated.

Trooper David Ralph is investigating the wreck.
