RENO, Nev. (AP) — Sheriff's deputies are investigating the death of a man who crashed through a backyard in south Reno and smashed into a boulder.

The victim has been identified as 21-year-old Randell Mercado of Reno. He was pronounced dead shortly after the accident in an area north of Welcome Way about 4 p.m. Wednesday.

The Washoe County sheriff's office says Mercado was driving a 2001 Isuzu SUV at a high rate of speed when he apparently lost control and collided with the boulder in the backyard of a residence on Tucumcari Circle.

No one at the home was hurt.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff's major accident investigation team at 775-328-3350.
