LAS VEGAS, NV – A man was killed in a two-vehicle collision on W. Lake Mead Boulevard last week, when his Dodge Challenger clipped a Honda Fit he was attempting to pass.
According to a press release filed by the LVMPD, the fatal collision happened at 9:52 a.m. on April 14, on W Lake Mead Boulevard just west of Springfield Street. The driver of a Dodge Challenger attempted to pass a 2011 Honda Fit on the left, but the front right side of the Dodge clipped the left rear of the Honda. This pushed the Dodge into the center median, which in turn caused it to carrom across the eastbound lanes and run off the right side of the road. The Dodge then struck and uprooted a tree, then overturned onto its roof.
Emergency responders pronounced the Dodge’s driver dead at the scene. The 26-year-old man’s identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
The 78-year-old female driver of the Honda remained at the scene. She was not injured, and police do not believe she was impaired at the time.
