A 71-year-old Milam man died in a late Monday afternoon crash in Sabine County. It happened shortly before 5:00 on Highway 87, about one mile north of the Milam Community.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says Marcus Crissman was driving southbound in his 2004 Ford pickup truck. As Crissman was going around a curve, DPS says the truck went off the roadway to the right, and as the man over-corrected to the left, the truck went back to the right and overturned off of the roadway.

Crissman was pronounced dead at the scene.
