A man died after losing control of his truck and striking a tree in the front yard of a house in northwest Harris County, deputies said.

The man, who has not been identified, was driving a tan-colored Toyota in the 11900 block of north Eldridge Parkway at 1:30 a.m. at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his vehicle, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

His truck veered from the road through a grass field, across the intersecting street, Leider Drive, and into the front yard of a private residence. The truck then hit a large tree.

The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, died at the scene.
