North Las Ve­gas man dies in crash in western val­ley

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - NEVADA -

A 25-year-old North Las Ve­gas man died in a two-ve­hi­cle crash after his car spun out in a western val­ley in­ter­sec­tion.

Metropoli­tan Po­lice De­part­ment traf­fic in­ves­ti­ga­tors were no­ti­fied of the crash shortly after 5:45 a.m. on Du­rango Drive south of Soneto Lane, near West Charleston Boule­vard.

Just be­fore the crash, a 2007 Chevro­let Ex­press 2500 van was head­ing north on Du­rango when a 2006 Dodge Charger trav­el­ing in the op­po­site di­rec­tion ro­tated and en­tered the north­bound lanes, strik­ing the Chevro­let, po­lice said.

The Dodge driver was pro­nounced dead at Univer­sity Med­i­cal Cen­ter, po­lice said, while the Chevro­let driver and two pas­sen­gers suf­fered mi­nor in­juries in the crash.

Po­lice do not be­lieve im­pair­ment was a fac­tor in the col­li­sion.

It was not clear what caused the Dodge to spin, but the crash oc­curred on slick roads caused by what the Na­tional Weather Ser­vice was call­ing “spotty show­ers” early Fri­day.

It was the 127th traf­fic death in­ves­ti­gated this year by Metro.
