The Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal rollover accident north of Reno Saturday night.

Troopers say it happened shortly after 10 p.m. near the Red Rock interchange. They say a gray 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer was driving south on U.S. 395 when it drifted off the right edge of the highway. The vehicle then rolled over down a dirt embankment and across both lanes of North Virginia Street. No other vehicles were involved.

Troopers say the driver and only person in the vehicle, 54-year old Ken Rodgers of Sacramento, was not wearing his seat belt. He was ejected and died at the scene.

Alcohol is suspected as a contributing factor in the crash.
