The motorist that died in a Foothills rollover just after 3 a.m. Tuesday has been identified.

Pima County Sheriff's deputies shut down Swan at Calle Barril, between River and Sunrise, for several hours before reopening it before 8 a.m.

Deputies arrived and determined 22-year-old Nikolas Roberts was southbound on Swan Road and crossed the median, rolling his vehicle.

Roberts died as a result of the injuries sustained during the accident and was pronounced deceased on scene.
 
The investigation determined Roberts was wearing his seatbelt, but believe speed to be a factor.
