This incident marked the 73rd fatality for the year, "which is way too many," said Lt. Brett Ficklin. According to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, the crash occurred around 8 p.m. near Russell Road and Maryland Parkway.  One driver died at the scene, while the other stayed at the scene with minor injuries. Lt. Ficklin said a Honda Civic was traveling eastbound on Russell when it was hit by a Chrysler 300 on the rear passenger side.  The 300 lost control before the crash, first hitting a traffic pole then eventually hitting the Honda, according to Ficklin.
