TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Arizona Department of Public Safety has released the identity of the person involved in Monday morning's rollover crash. 

Julian Zepeda, 29, from Tucson, had been traveling westbound on I-10 when, for an unknown reason, he lost control of the pickup, it hit the median and rolled several times, according to AZDPS.  

At the time of the crash Zepeda was not wearing his seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle, according to DPS officials. He was transported to Banner University Medical Center where he later died from his injuries.  

The crash briefly closed westbound Interstate 10 just before Tangerine Road on Monday, Oct. 3. 

The Northwest Fire District had received multiple 911 calls about a single-vehicle rollover around 8:30 a.m., according to a news release from the NWFD.

The first unit on the scene found the Zepeda laying in the median with life-threatening injuries, an off-duty paramedic and police officers were rendering aid.

According to DPS officials there are no signs of impairment involved in the crash.
