At least one man was killed Sunday morning. The fatality was a 34-year-old Harvey man who was killed in a one-car accident five miles south of Hamberg.

Jason Thomas, the driver, was thrown from his vehicle and was later pronounced dead at a Harvey hospital, reported North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Thomas was headed north on North Dakota Highway 30 at 6:50 this Sunday morning. He was on his way home from a farmstead when his 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix drifted east off the road.

The driver over-corrected and lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle turned clockwise and was propelled towards the east ditch. It struck an approach and vaulted. The car turned turtle and rolled an undetermined number of times and Thomas was ejected. Thomas was not wearing a seatbelt.

Investigation is still ongoing on the cause of the accident – why the driver lost control of his vehicle. Witnesses said that he was not over speeding.

A law on seat belt requires the use of seat belts to motor vehicles and/or the wearing of seat belts by motor vehicle occupants. In the USA, seatbelt laws are different from state to state. Depending on which state you are in, not wearing a seatbelt in the front seat is either a primary offense or a secondary offense, In the front seat, the driver and each passenger must wear a seat belt, one person per belt Studies by road safety authorities conclude that seat belt legislation has reduced the number of casualties in road accidents
