A Victoria man died early Sunday morning when he wrecked his vehicle on U.S. Highway 87, about 11 miles north of Cuero.

Johnny Paul Davis, 74, was driving north on U.S. 87 about 5:17 a.m. when his 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee left the roadway for an unknown reason, overturned and then struck a utility pole, said Doug Dunivan, a dispatcher with the San Antonio office of the Department of Public Safety.

Davis was pronounced dead at the scene at 6 a.m., Dunivan said.

Trooper Donald Plunkett is investigating the wreck.
