OAKDALE (WATE) - A Morgan County man was killed Friday morning when his vehicle ran off the roadway.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says George Beach, 37, was traveling northbound on Airport Road around 11:25 a.m. when he crossed the center line, went off the left side of the road and went down an embankment, striking a ditch.

The vehicle then struck an elevated driveway culvert, going airborne, and landed in the same ditch on the opposite side of the driveway, striking the embankment.

Beach was killed in the crash. Troopers say he was not wearing a seat belt.
