Nevada Highway Patrol arrested 22-year-old Gary Richard Adair, Jr. for DUI - drugs with death , failure to drive in a travel lane, expired license plates, altered plates, and no proof of insurance.

The crash happened at approximately 5:30 p.m. Monday night on the U.S. 95 southbound ramp to Summerlin Parkway.
