KUNA, Idaho -- Deputies say a man driving a pickup truck east on Kuna Road near Locust Grove Road lost control of his vehicle, hit a tree, and died Tuesday night.

Paramedics found him dead at the crash scene around 11:30 p.m. No one else was inside the truck.

Ada County Sheriff's deputies worked for nearly four hours to cut the truck open and get the man's body out. Officers with the Kuna Police Department and Kuna firefighters assisted.

They say the man crashed about 30 feet away from a nearby home, and the tree likely prevented the truck from hitting the home.

The Ada County coroner has identified the deceased man as 26-year-old Brian D. Jones of Kuna. The cause of death is blunt force trauma.

It's unclear if weather conditions played a role in the crash.
