PATEROS — A Chelan man died early Saturday morning after he lost control of his pickup truck on a Highway 97 curve five miles south of Pateros.

Cole Ballenger, 48, died at the scene of the crash. The accident was reported at 1:17 a.m. Saturday. Ballenger was likely driving too fast to negotiate the turn and lost control and left the northbound lane of the highway, according to the Washington State Patrol report. The 2003 Chevrolet pickup crossed a private driveway and came to rest in a roadside pond.
