ST. CLAIR COUNTY – An Odenville man died in a single-vehicle crash Sunday morning.

Alabama Highway Patrol Public Information Officer Cpl. Steve Smith identified the victim as Howard Thomas Bills, 51.

The wreck happened at 8:39 a.m. on U.S. 78, near Camp Winnataska.

The crash appears to have occurred when the driver entered a curve too fast for wet roadway conditions, Smith said.

“The vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree,” he said.

The driver was the only occupant of the 1995 Chevrolet Suburban.

St. Clair County Coroner Dennis Russell said the victim was pronounced dead at the scene from blunt force trauma.
