Raymond Ballard, 78, of Greenville died in the accident, according to a report released Monday morning by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

DPS Sgt. Kyle Bradford said Highway Patrol troopers were dispatched at approximately 11 a.m. Saturday to a major crash on State Highway 34, approximately a quarter-mile south of Greenville.

“Preliminary investigation indicates that a Cadillac Escalade was traveling north on State Highway 34. For a yet to be determined reason, the vehicle failed to drive in a single lane and left the roadway, colliding with a culvert in the northbound bar ditch,” Bradford said. “The vehicle overturned and came to a rest on its top. The driver was not wearing a seat belt and was pronounced deceased on scene.”

Bradford said the investigation is ongoing and no further information was immediately available.
