LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– A 54-year-old man was killed and two others seriously injured in a Henderson crash Wednesday night.
The crash, which involved three vehicles, was reported around 8:20 p.m. near South Valle Verde and Clearwater Canyon drives.
Henderson Police said speed and reckless driving were factors in the crash which occurred when the driver of a Honda Accord who was headed northbound on Valle Verde passed a Ford pickup causing a collision and forcing the pickup to enter the southbound lane where it collided with a Hyundai SUV.
The driver of the pickup was partially ejected and died. His identity will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office. Two other people were transported with injuries to the hospital.
All lanes of travel were closed for four hours on South Valle Verde Drive from Paseo Verde Drive to Horizon Ridge Parkway while police investigated the crash.
