MITCHELL -- Western Nebraska authorities believe alcohol may have been a factor in a one-vehicle crash that killed a 46-year-old man.

The Scotts Bluff County Sheriff's Office said Jose Louis Garcia of Mitchell died in the crash about a mile and a half east of Mitchell at about 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

Authorities said Garcia was driving east on Spring Creek Road when he lost control of his Chevrolet Tahoe. Garcia over-corrected, veered off the road and struck a utility pole.

Garcia died at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt.
