Jacob O'Connell, 24, of Buffalo, was pronounced dead at the scene, a news release states.
According to the release, Scott County Deputies, the Scott County Accident Crash Team, Buffalo Fire, Buffalo Ambulance and Medforce were dispatched to the 7200 block of 112th Street about 1 a.m. Saturday after reports of a single vehicle rollover.
The release states that the road is a two-lane paved road with gravel shoulders in the southwest part of Scott County, between Buffalo and Blue Grass.
An on-scene investigation determined Mr. O'Connell was traveling south on 70th Avenue, which becomes 112th Street, in a 2008 Ford F-150, according to the release. After coming out of a curve in the road, the news release states the truck crossed the yellow line and went into the grassy ditch on the north side of the road.

Mr. O'Connell was not wearing a seat belt, according to the release.
The crash remains under investigation.
