A man riding on top of a moving van died after falling off in Blount County.

The sheriff's office says 37-year-old David Harold Chandler, Jr. was standing on top of a 2002 Toyota Sienna as it drove on Cloyd's Church Road Sunday night. He fell off as it went around a curve, then slid 29 feet before landing in the middle of the road. He was pronounced dead at UT Medical Center on Monday.

The driver of the van, 20-year-old Patrick Borden, was charged with reckless endangerment. He remains in the Blount County jail on a $1,500 bond.
