The Nevada Highway Patrol has identified a Sparks man as the person who was killed in a single-vehicle accident Saturday morning on Interstate 80 east of Sparks.

According to the NHP, Luis Aguilar-Hurtado, 56, died when his truck rolled off the highway.

Troopers responded to the crash at 9:15 a.m. Saturday on I-80 at mile marker 63 east of Fernley. Their investigation shows that Aguilar-Hurtado was driving eastbound in a silver 2001 Ford F-250 pickup truck on I-80 at speeds too fast for the icy conditions, and the pickup went off the roadway and overturned, coming to rest on its roof. He was declared dead at the scene.
