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