An Odessa man was killed in a rollover traffic crash Wednesday evening in Lafayette County.

A Missouri State Highway Patrol report states the crash occurred as an eastbound 1996 Chevy Lumina van driven by Kevin Snyder, 55, reportedly failed to negotiate a right turn, causing the vehicle to skid off the roadway. The vehicle struck a ditch, overturned and struck a tree. Snyder was partially ejected from the vehicle, according to the report.

Snyder, who reportedly was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced deceased at the scene at 10:06 p.m. by the Lafayette County Deputy Coroner.

The crash happened at about 9:35 p.m. on Lafayette Drive, just west of Missouri Highway 131.
