Driver Dies in Hospital After Being Struck at Red Light A man is dead after a red-light traffic collision in Las Vegas. One person is dead after Las Vegas Police officers responded to an incident at Craig Road, just west of Ivory Circle around 7:02 am on May 12th. The accident occurred when a Ram 1500 pickup truck was traveling east on Craig Road, approaching a Toyota Tacoma from behind. The Ram driver reached over and grabbed a drink from the passenger’s side of his car, taking his eyes off the road and colliding with the rear of the Toyota, according to Las Vegas Police. After the collision occurred, the Toyota was pushed off the roadway, crashing into a large light pole. Medical personnel transported the Toyota driver to the Trauma Unit at University Medical Center while the Ram driver remained on the scene. Police report that the driver of the Ram exhibited no signs of impairment. Just this past Sunday, the Toyota driver was pronounced dead. A statement from LVMPD read, “Pending the completion of the Clark County Office of the Coroner/Medical Examiner investigation, the death will not be counted as a traffic-related fatality in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's jurisdiction for 2022.” The crash is still being investigated by Las Vegas Police.     “Car accidents are on the rise in the Las Vegas area.
