A 23-year-old man from Crane, a town in West Texas, was killed in a one-vehicle crash early Tuesday.

Texas Department of Public Safety troopers are investigating a one-vehicle crash that killed a 23-year-old man early Tuesday morning.

Rudy Gabaldon, of Crane, was killed in the crash on Farm-to-Market Road 2311, between Axtell and Leroy just off Highway 31. Officials were called to the crash at about 5:25 a.m.

DPS Sgt. D.L. Wilson said troopers found Gabaldon in a 2006 GMC pickup truck that appeared to have lost control on a curve while traveling north and crashed into a line of trees.

Wilson said the DPS investigation continues. Officials are uncertain when the crash happened.

Wilson said Gabaldon was wearing a seat belt.
