The Arizona Department of Public Safety says a 29-year-old man accused of stealing a truck and leading officials on a chase through the Valley died in Tuesday's crash. 

DPS said the suspect, identified as Bradley Burton Moore, stole a work truck from a construction site at the Guadalupe and Cooper roads intersection in Gilbert.  

The truck was spotted on Loop 101 and McDowell Road before it continued onto I-17. Road conditions worsened along the I-17 and two successful spike strips stopped the vehicle north of Anthem.  

Moore lost control of the truck near Copper Canyon, hit a guardrail and flipped down the canyon. He was ejected during the rollover and passed away from his injuries despite emergency care on scene.  

DPS says Moore was from Yuma but was recently staying in the Valley. 

No other information has been released.

The incident is still under investigation.
