Pine Co., MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A Hinckley man died in a single vehicle rollover Saturday evening in Pine County.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, 24–year–old Cole Hegge of Hinckley was traveling west on Highway 18 when he apparently fell asleep behind the wheel.

His 2000 Ford Focus left the road onto the right shoulder, hit a group of trees, and rolled.

Hegge wasn't wearing a seatbelt, and was ejected from his car. Officers pronounced him dead on the scene.

The State Patrol says there is evidence that alcohol was a factor.
