One person is dead following a single-vehicle accident Wednesday night about three-miles east of Bayard, in Guthrie County. The Sheriff’s Department says the driver of a 1997 Chevy truck was found on the west shoulder of Nice Avenue, just north of Highway 141, shortly after authorities were notified at around 7:10-p.m. Bayard Ambulance and Fire and Guthrie County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the scene.

Officials say the man, who had been ejected from his vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene. His name was being withheld pending notification of relatives. An investigation determined the vehicle was traveling north on Nice Avenue when it entered the east ditch and rolled, ejecting the driver. The accident remains under investigation.
