 One person is dead after a rollover accident in southwest Wichita Saturday morning.

KHP Trooper Austin Schneider said the incident took place around 1 a.m. near I-235 and West. A person who saw the crash called 9-1-1.  

Schneider said a driver of a pickup truck veered left of the highway, appeared to over-correct and left the roadway on the right; then, the vehicle rolled several times. The truck came to a rest about 300 feet off the road. 

26-year old Ernesto Flores, of Wichita, was thrown from the truck and pronounced dead at the scene.  He was the only person in the vehicle. No other people were hurt.
