ELKO, Nev. (AP) — The Nevada Highway Patrol has identified the victim of a fatal single-vehicle rollover last week in Elko County.

The patrol said Monday 58-year-old Scott McKay of Elko died in the crash Friday on State Route 225 about 12 miles (19 kilometers) north of Elko.

Investigators say they have not determined why, but McKay apparently allowed his 2012 Dodge pickup to drift off the paved shoulder at about 12:30 p.m. on Friday.

The truck then traveled down an embankment and overturned before coming to rest on its wheels.

The patrol says McKay was wearing his seatbelt. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
