LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

One man is dead after a wreck in Hale County Friday night.

The wreck happened just before 10 p.m. under the I-27 overpass at FM 54, about two miles north of Abernathy.

Investigators say a Mercury Grand Marquis was headed westbound on FM 54 and hit a concrete support column under the I-27 overpass.

First responders found the 23-year-old male driver deceased when they arrived. He was the only person in the car.

DPS is investigating. We'll continue to update this story as we learn more.
