JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ill. - A 23 year-old Franklin County, Ilinois man died Saturday morning after his car hit a tree, overturned and fell down an embankment.

Illinois State Police says Ronnie Stroud was driving on Illinois Route 148 near East Flagg Road when he over-corrected his car.  ISP says Stroud crossed both lanes of traffic and ended up coming to a stop upside down.

ISP says excessive speed is a factor in the wreck.  Stroud was the only person in the car and no one else was hurt.  Toxicology reports are pending.
