HOVEN, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Highway Patrol has released the name of a truck driver who died earlier this week in a one-vehicle crash near Hoven.

Authorities have identified the driver as 28-year-old Claremont resident Lee Loebs.

The Highway Patrol says Loebs lost control of the service truck he was driving on state Highway 47 Thursday afternoon near Hoven. The vehicle rolled after going into the ditch, and Loebs was ejected.

Loebs was pronounced dead at the scene. The Highway Patrol says he was not wearing a seatbelt.

The crash remains under investigation.
