As the vehicle continued to rotate it entered the center dirt median where it overturned and came to rest in the southbound travel lanes.
The driver of the Nissa was identified as Christopher Richard Michael Liggins, a 31-year-old male from Las Vegas, Nevada.
Liggins succumbed to his injuries sustained in the crash and was pronounced deceased on scene.
The Nevada State Police suspects impairment played a factor in this crash.
