It happened Wednesday around 5 p.m. on State Road 529 west of Hobbs.

Police say an initial investigation shows that the driver of a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse was driving recklessly at a high rate of speed when the car left the road and rolled.

The driver, 43-year-old Christopher Michael Clayburn of Artesia, was ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Clayburn was not wearing a seatbelt and alcohol does appear to be a factor in the crash.
