LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A driver is facing charges after a 73-year-old man died Sunday night in a crash involving two vehicles and a moped.
The crash occurred around 5 p.m., on West Flamingo Road west of the intersection with South Tenaya Way.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said evidence at the scene and witness statements indicated that a black 2019 Chevrolet Colorado driven by Kyle Foster, 28, was traveling westbound on Flamingo Road when a white 2013 Ford Taurus driven by a 64-year-old woman made a left turn, entering the path of the Chevrolet.
The left front of the Chevrolet hit the right front of the Ford causing the Chevrolet to then hit a stopped moped in a private driveway.
The woman, her 73-year-old male passenger, and Foster, all suffered injuries and were transported to University Medical Trauma. The 73-year-old passenger died after arriving at the hospital. The rider of the moped reported minor injuries but declined medical attention.
Foster, 28, is now facing two charges of reckless driving resulting in death or substantial bodily injury.
The man’s death marks the 16th traffic-related death in Metro’s jurisdiction since the beginning of the year.
