Man dead after truck spins out of control on I-215


A 25-year-old man was killed when he was thrown from his pickup truck after it rolled off an on-ramp on the 215 Beltway early Saturday, Nov. 10, according to a Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman.

The man, identified by highway patrol as Juan Diaz, 25, was transported to University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 6:32 a.m., officials said. According to preliminary investigations, his 2000 GMC Sierra C1500 was traveling west onto I-215 from Windmill Lane. Officials believe Diaz steered the vehicle left, causing it to spin and travel off the left roadway edge. The truck flipped as it traveled down the rocky embankment between the ramp and the 215. Diaz, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle, the release said.
