FARMINGTON, Ill. -- A Canton man is dead after being ejected from his vehicle in rural Farmington.

The Fulton County Coroner says Nathan Watson, 34, was traveling on Route 78, about 4 miles south of Farmington when his vehicle rolled over.

He was pronounced dead at the scene around 8:30 Saturday morning.

There were no other occupants in the vehicle, and authorities are not sure if he was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
