HAWTHORNE, NV - Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP) troopers and the Major Accident Investigation Team (M.A.I.T.) are investigating a fatal rollover in Hawthorne.

The accident happened just after 1:30 am the morning of Friday, May 3rd on Armory Road. Photographs show it happened in front of the baseball diamonds.

NHP officials say early information shows a Ford F350 was going south on Armory when it drifted to the right and off the road. The driver then over-corrected, crossed the road, went off the east side of the road and hit a culvert. That's when the truck flipped and the driver was thrown out of the vehicle.

Emergency workers took the driver, 22-year-old Spencer Allen Hinton, to a hospital, where he died.

Investigators are still looking into the cause of the crash and encourage anyone with more information to call Trooper Chris Kelly at (775) 687-0400 (refer to case # NHP-130502168).
