TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson police identified the man who died in a single-vehicle rollover crash in midtown Tucson on Tuesday, April 11. 

Police say 28-year-old Colby Olsen died after being taken to the hospital following the crash at around 2 a.m. in the 2200 block of North Euclid Avenue south of East Grant Road.

Tucson police Sgt. Pete Dugan said Olsen lost control of his car as he drove at a high rate of speed north on Euclid.

A news release from the Tucson Police Department said the car traveled over the sidewalk on the east side of the road and into a landscaped area, which caused the car to flip and tumble through trees and over large boulders before striking a parked SUV in the front yard of a home.

Police say speed and alcohol are contributing factors in this crash.

Olsen was not wearing his seat belt. His passenger, who was taken to Banner-University Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries, had his seat belt buckled.

Euclid Avenue was shut down between East Edison and East Waverly streets for several hours.
