He was driving a Ford Falcon sedan west along the Coalfields Road in Darkan about 5.45am when he lost control of his vehicle.

The vehicle rolled, coming to a rest on its roof.
The driver was trapped in the vehicle and he died at the scene as a result of injuries he received in the crash.
His next of kin has not been notified.
