PHOENIX — A 51-year-old man was found dead Tuesday morning after his vehicle apparently rolled into a drainage basin in Scottsdale.

Officers responded to a report of a single-vehicle rollover around 7:30 a.m. near Shea Boulevard and 96th Street and found Roberto Pagan dead in his vehicle, the Scottsdale Police Department said in a press release.

The cause and time of the crash are unknown as there were no known witnesses, police said.

Pagan was the sole occupant of the vehicle.

Detectives said Pagan could have experienced a life-threatening medical event while driving that may have caused his Volvo SUV to drive off the roadway.

Speed was not a factor in the rollover and authorities are awaiting toxicology reports to determine if Pagan was impaired.
