According to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, a 19-year-old was critically injured in a single-vehicle crash Wednesday night.

The crash happened around 8:20 p.m. on S. Valley View Boulevard, south of the intersection at W. Twain Avenue.

Police said a red 1995 Honda Civic was traveling southbound on Valley View at a high rate of speed. LVMPD said the driver oversteered trying to avoid a slower vehicle, causing him to lose control of the Honda. The car exited the road and hit a decorative boulder.

LVMPD continues to investigate the crash.
