RACINE - Drugs and alcohol are not suspected in a Saturday morning crash that killed a 31 year old Racine man.

The man was westbound in the 41-hundred block of Highway K when his vehicle drifted onto the shoulder of the road. Police say he overcorrected and turned sharply, losing control of the vehicle and landing in a ditch, striking several pine trees.

The man, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was partially ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene around 9am.
