The Las Vegas man was driving a black 2000 GMC pickup on the westbound I-215 onramp at Windmill Lane at about 2:45 a.m. Saturday. Diaz steered the truck left which caused it to rotate counter-clockwise across the roadway and overturn down the rock covered embankment which separates the elevated onramp from the expressway.

Diaz was transported to UMC where he was declared dead by medical professionals at 6:32 a.m.
