A 28-year-old man died Sunday afternoon after his vehicle drove off the road.

Michael Marquette, of Mexico, was driving a 2002 GMC Envoy on Highway 19 north of Baysinger Corner just before 3:15 p.m. when he lost control of the vehicle on the ice-covered road, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report. The Envoy drove off the right side and down an embankment, collided with the ground and overturned.

Marquette was partially ejected from the car; he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The fatal crash was the first for MSHP Troop F in 2018.
