A man died Friday afternoon in a single-vehicle crash on Blue Diamond Road at Interstate 15, the Nevada Highway Patrol said.
A witness told NHP troopers that a white Nissan Altima was traveling east on Blue Diamond at about 5 p.m. when the vehicle left the road in a construction area at I-15 for unknown reasons, Trooper Chelita Rojas said.
The vehicle hit a construction barricade, then went airborne and landed on construction materials, Rojas said.
The driver, a man who was the only occupant of the car, was dead when emergency responders arrived.
Investigators aren't sure what caused the car to leave the roadway, Rojas said.
