It happened at approximately 11:30 a.m. on CR 424 just north of the small community of Thrall.

Investigators with the Department of Public Safety say 47-year-old Mahlon Ator, of Hare, was traveling north when his Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck traveled off the roadway and struck a guardrail, causing the truck to rollover into a creek bed.

Ator died at the scene.
