Nevada Highway Patrol Troopers have identified the driver involved in a fatal crash on South Virginia Street near South Hills Drive this past Monday. 

Troopers say 75-year-old Edward Hess of Reno was heading south on Virginia Street when he veered to the left, crossed the center turn and into the two northbound lanes. The car then went off the roadway, through a barbed wire fence and hit a billboard sign post. 

Hess died on scene after the 3:15 p.m. crash. 

Troopers say the cause of his death has not been determined, but say it may be a possible medical-related issue.
