A Hammond man died after losing control of his vehicle on an Interstate 55 on-ramp early Thursday morning, according to State Police.

Nolan K. Bel, 37, was entering the highway from U.S. 51 sometime between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. when his vehicle ran off the road and overturned, troopers said.

Bel, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle and died. Troopers believe speed contributed to the crash.
