Avery Rogers, 34, of Jackson, was driving a gray Subaru westbound on Highway 26 at a high rate of speed when he failed to negotiate a corner. Rogers overcorrected and eventually left the highway to the north side into some trees.
Rogers was wearing a seatbelt but succumbed to his injuries at the scene.
Driver inattention and alcohol use are being investigated as possible contributing factors.
