— Speed was a factor in a single-vehicle wreck that killed a Jacksonville man on Interstate 40 West near Benson Saturday evening, according to the state Highway Patrol.

State troopers said that a Dodge pickup truck veered off the road near mile marker 334 and crashed into a road sign at about 9:30 p.m. The pickup overturned before coming to a stop in a wooded area.

Emanuel Santiago, 43, died on impact, troopers said.

The crash remained under investigation Monday morning.
