MONUMENT, Colo. — Slick roads may have played a role in a rollover crash that killed a man in Monument early Monday morning, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

Troopers said the crash happened around 5:15 a.m. on southbound Interstate 25 just north of the Monument exit. A 1996 Honda Accord was headed southbound when the driver lost control and went off the road. The car hit a tree, hit a road sign, and rolled twice, according to troopers.

Police said the driver, 41-year-old Steven Wade of Denver, was ejected and died on the scene. He was not wearing a seatbelt, according to troopers.

Troopers said it appears the driver was going too fast for conditions. It was rainy and snowy at the time of the crash.
