Apparently, writing more than three sentences to inform the public of what happened is just too dang hard. Below is from Carson Now.

The incident began at around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday when a Carson City Sheriff's Office deputy attempted to speak with the driver who was parked in his vehicle off of Goni Road in the canyon area, said Carson City Undersheriff Jerome Tushbant. When the deputy approached the vehicle, the driver took off at a high rate of speed.

The deputy alerted dispatch of the situation and attempted to locate the vehicle. Shortly thereafter, the deputy located the vehicle, which had rolled and was on its roof on Goni Road south of Fermi Road. The driver was trapped inside.

Carson City Fire Department responded to the scene, which required extrication. A Care Flight air ambulance was ordered and landed nearby. The driver was pronounced dead shortly after midnight.
