TAZEWELL (WATE) - A New Tazewell man died Monday in a rollover dump truck crash.

Chris Collinsworth, 39, was hauling gravel for his employer on Narrows Road Monday afternoon when his dump truck rolled several times, according to the sheriff's office.

Investigators says Collinsworth was either thrown from the truck or tried to jump to safety. The truck landed on top of him.

Officials say Collinsworth raced every weekend at the Tazewell Speedway.
