A Yoakum man was killed in a one-vehicle wreck Wednesday afternoon near the community of Midway in Lavaca County.

About 4 p.m. Roland Clay, 62, was traveling north on County Road 326 in a 1984 Chevrolet pickup a mile east of County Road 329 when he failed to negotiate a curve and overcorrected, causing his truck to overturn, Said Sgt. Ruben San Miguel, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety.

Clay was not wearing his seatbelt, the trooper said.

Justice of the Peace Hallie Hall held an inquest and pronounced him dead at the scene at 4:48 p.m.
