TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tucson police say a man was not wearing a seatbelt and died after being thrown from a truck that overturned.

Police Sgt. Pete Dugan says the rollover accident occurred around 6:15 p.m. Thursday near Tucson Boulevard and Irvington Road.

Dugan says preliminary evidence indicates the male driver of a Chevrolet pickup truck lost control of the vehicle while driving in light rain and over-corrected his steering.

The vehicle hit a raised median and a tree, leading the truck to roll.

Dugan says 19-year-old Michael Anthony Van Bogaert, the only passenger, was ejected by the impact.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver suffered minor injuries.

Dugan says neither was using a seatbelt.

Alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the crash.
