According to Wood County Sheriff Deputy Deem, Wendell Ayers was driving a Chevy pick up truck west bound on Hoagland Run Road.
His attempt to make a slight left turn failed, causing him to run off the road, over an embankment, and into a creek on the side of the roadway.
Ayers was transported to St. Josephs Campus of Camden Clark Medical Center where he later died.
The accident is still under investigation, but officials say drugs, alcohol, or speed were not factors in the crash
