SCHUYLER COUNTY, Ill. (WGEM) -

An Adams County man died early Saturday morning around 12:45 after he lost control of his truck in Schuyler County.

Deputies say 51 year-old Thomas R. Duncan of Fowler was traveling eastbound on La Prairie Road near Grand Tower Road when his vehicle went off the road and ran into a ditch.

They say the impact caused Duncan's vehicle to become airborne and then strike a utility pole and a road marker.

The vehicle rolled several times and landed in a field 60 yards from the road.

Police say Duncan wasn't wearing his seat belt and he was ejected from the vehicle.

Brown County Sheriff's Department, Schuyler County Sheriff's Department and Schuyler County EMS all assisted in the accident.
