A man died after a rollover accident where he was ejected almost 20 yards from his SUV.

Graves County Sheriff's deputies responded to the 4000 block of Meridian Road for the wreck shortly after midnight Thursday, June 26.

They found David Arellano, 40 of Mayfield in a ditch where he was thrown from his 1999 Ford SUV.

After investigation of the accident, it's determined that Mr. Arellano was driving South on Meridian Road when he went off the right side of the road, hitting a mailbox.

Arellano then steered back onto the road, crossing both lanes, and went off the road again into a ditch.

He then steered back onto the road where the SUV rolled over several times ejecting him almost 20 yards from the SUV.

Mr. Arellano was transported to Jackson Purchase Medical Center, but was pronounced dead at 1:23 AM due to his injuries.
