NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV (FOX5) -

A 37-year-old man was killed in a two-vehicle crash at approximately 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

The collision took place in the intersection of West Lake Mead Blvd and Texas Star Lane, between a Jeep and a sedan.

According to North Las Vegas Police, the preliminary investigation indicates the driver of the Jeep was involved in a minor rash in the parking lot of Texas Station, and was reportedly attempting to flee from that crash when he drove northbound on Lake Mead Blvd.

Evidence suggests he failed to stop for the red light as he exited the parking lot, and infringed on the path of a sedan that was driving eastbound on Lake Mead Blvd. Police said there were three occupants of the sedan; an 18-year-old male driver, an 18-year-old male passenger and a 28-year-old male passenger. The three men were transported to UMC with no life-threatening injuries.  

Police believe the driver of the Jeep was not wearing his seat belt, and was ejected from the vehicle during the collision. He was unresponsive upon police arrival, and was pronounced dead on scene, by medical personnel.

This is the 8th fatal crash in North Las Vegas this year.
