New Mexico State Police say 35-year-old Jason Clapper was driving on U.S. Highway 82 between Alamogordo and Cloudcroft at a high rate of speed when the vehicle rolled at about 5:30 a.m. Sunday.

State Police say Clapper was wearing a seatbelt, sustained minor injuries and was able to get out of the vehicle.

While standing along the road in an unlit area, authorities say Clapper was struck by a passing car.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

State Police say the crash is under investigation, but alcohol doesn't appear to be a contributing factor in the fatal collision and the driver isn't facing any charges at this time.
