(Fargo, ND) -- A man is dead following a single-vehicle crash in Becker County.

The Minnesota State Patrol says the crash happened early Saturday morning as the 2003 Hyundai coupe exited Highway 34 at Old Mill Road at a high rate of speed. The vehicle reportedly then left the roadway before careening into a ditch. Troopers say it then went airborne before coming to rest on its wheels.

The vehicle's airbag reportedly did deploy, but authorities say the 39-year-old victim was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, and didn't make it.

A cause for the crash is under investigation.
