A Bridgeport man was killed in a one-vehicle rollover near Lake Bridgeport Saturday afternoon.

Andrew Chase Walker, 21, was southbound on Farm Road 2952, approaching a curve in the road, when he veered off the roadway, caught the edge of pavement and overcorrected, losing control of the Dodge truck he was driving. The pick-up rolled sideways before splintering a telephone pole and coming to a rest in a thicket of brush.

Investigators believe speed was a factor in the crash, which occurred around 5:30 p.m.

Walker was the only occupant of the truck, and no other vehicles were involved in the wreck.

Lake Bridgeport Volunteer Fire Department, Wise County medics and sheriff’s deputies and state troopers responded.
