Authorities are investigating an early-Saturday morning accident in which a 24-year-old Fremont man died.
Mark M. Morgan died in the accident at 1:24 a.m. Saturday about one-quarter mile north of Big Island Road on Ridge Road, Chief Deputy Bob Reynolds said.
Morgan was a passenger in a 1994 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck driven by Quintin Frazier, 18, of Fremont. Morgan was partially ejected from the truck when Frazier lost control while attempting to pass another vehicle. The truck entered the west ditch and rolled.
Morgan was transported to Fremont Area Medical Center by Fremont Fire and Rescue personnel and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Frazier and a 15-year-old Fremont boy, who also was a passenger, were transported to FAMC where they were treated for minor injuries and released.
The accident remains under investigation.
