LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Police have arrested a 52-year-old man in connection with a three-vehicle crash Thursday morning in Sunrise Manor, according to Metro police.
Derek Herman, the driver of a box truck involved in the crash, was charged with DUI and one count of failing to obey a red traffic light. The crash happened shortly after 7 a.m at the intersection of E. Lake Mead Boulevard and Walnut Road, between Pecos Road and Lamb Boulevard.
Police say that three vehicles were involved — two cars and one box truck. A 15-year-old boy, who was the front passenger in a Toyota Camry, died at the scene.
Herman is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
Intersections were closed for about six hours during the investigation. Drivers were advised to use other routes to avoid delays.
