North Las Vegas Police are investigating a crash that led to the death of one man on the morning of March 29th.
The crash occurred around 10:40 a.m. in the area of West Carey Avenue and North Martin Luther King Boulevard.
According to police, a silver Honda Accord was traveling west on Carey at a high rate of speed while approaching the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard, where he failed to stop at a red light.
The Accord then hit a silver Mazda SUV that was making a left-hand turn from Carey onto Martin Luther King Boulevard on a green traffic signal.
The collision sent both vehicles into a spin, where the Accord plowed into an empty COVID-19 information tent located in an adjacent parking lot. Fortunately, the tent was not occupied.
The driver of the Mazda SUV, a man in his 60s, was taken to University Medical Center with his condition unknown to the public.
The driver of the Accord was unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
Police do not believe that impairment was a factor in the crash, however, speed was.
