RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Update on Feb. 1: Nevada State Police say that on Jan. 24 around 6:16 p.m., they responded to a crash on southbound I-580 in Reno.

Their investigation found that a red Chevy pickup was traveling south when the driver struck a disabled Nissan Frontier and its driver.

The driver of the Frontier was identified as 53-year-old Oscar Orlando Acosta Manzano of Carson City. Police say he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Original Article: Nevada State Police are investigating after a crash on 580 left one person dead. It happened Tuesday night, just south of the Mount Rose Highway exit. Traffic was reduced to a single lane for a few hours, and has since reopened.

According to Highway Patrol troopers, a car was sitting disabled on the right shoulder. A person with that vehicle was standing outside and was hit. The driver of that car stayed on the scene and is cooperating with officials.

Investigators say they don’t believe impairment played a part in the crash. The cause is still under investigation.
