Albany -- A teenager was transported to the hospital Sunday morning after losing control of his pick-up on the Liberty Bypass.

The accident happened about 8:00 AM in the eastbound lanes about a half a mile east of the Slappey Exit.

19-year-old Ryan Tatum was traveling at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his truck and hit a sign.

He tried to get back on the bypass, but over-corrected flipping several times. Tatum was ejected from the vehicle. Firefighters believe that we was not wearing a seat-belt.

The road was wet at the time, but we don't know if that contributed to the accident.
