Lincloln County, NV (KTNV) -- Officials are investigating the cause of a rollover crash that left a driver dead on Friday night.

Around 9:46 p.m., a gray 2000 Chevrolet Silverado pickup was traveling eastbound on SR-322 west of mile marker 12 in Lincoln County. The driver steered the pickup abruptly to the left as it approached a right hand curve in the roadway.

The pickup rotated counter clockwise across the westbound travel lane and entered the desert area north of SR-322. The pickup overturned ejecting the unrestrained female driver.

The pickup continued to overturn, striking a tree with its right side. The pickup came to rest on its left side in the desert area north of SR-322 facing northwest.

The 56-year-old female driver was taken to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead by medical staff.

The coroner  has not yet released the victim's name.

This is the 41st fatal crash of this year.
