JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A man has died in a single-vehicle roller crash on I-220 early Tuesday morning.

Jackson police say, Christopher Welch, 41, was driving near Hanging Moss Road when he somehow went off the road and overturned multiple times.

Welch was thrown out of his vehicle during the rollover and landed in the left southbound lane of I-220, JPD says.

Welch died on the scene.

The incident happened just before 3 a.m. and shut down both lanes of the highway as police investigated.

JPD says he was not wearing a seatbelt, and alcohol could have played a factor in the crash.
