The victim has been identified as 34-year old Joseph Wilson.

Authorities say Wilson was ejected from the vehicle on impact while the truck continued another 50 feet before stopping.
The Madison County Coroner declared Wilson dead at the scene. The Clark County Coroner notified the family. Police say Wilson was not wearing a seatbelt. Trooper Robert Purdy is investigating the accident.
