LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — One person is dead following a crash at US 95 and Lake Mead.
NHP says around 5:20 pm, a silver Hyundai was on the southbound US 95 on-ramp. The car was going too fast in the rain and lost control. It than began to spin into the southbound lanes of US 95, where it was hit in the driver’s side door by a brown Hyundai.
The driver of the silver Hyundai was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead. The passengers in his car were not taken to the hospital. The passenger in the brown Hyundai was taken to UMC with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of that car is okay.
The deceased driver was a male, but his identity has not been released. Investigators don’t believe impairment was a factor in the crash.
US 95 was closed for several hours, but is now back open.
