INWOOD, W.Va. — A man was killed Tuesday evening when the Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck he was driving east on Fish Hatchery Road struck an embankment and rolled over several times, according to the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office.

Matthew R. Nestor, 23, was killed in the crash, the sheriff's office said in a news release.  

Nestor was pinned upside down in the cab and partially ejected from the truck in the crash, the release said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash, which was reported at 6:13 p.m., occurred just east of a fish hatchery, the release said.
