Speed, alcohol suspected in deadly crash

NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV (FOX5) -

A woman was killed early Monday morning after striking a brick wall near Lake Mead Boulevard and Simmons Street.

Police said she was driving her Nissan Versa westbound on Lake Mead when she lost control and hit the wall. She was ejected on impact and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators said it appeared the still unidentified woman lost control of her vehicle. She was not wearing a seatbelt.

Police believe speed, alcohol and the driver's failure to wear a restraint contributed to her death.

The coroner will release the woman's identity in the coming days.

This is the 10th traffic-related fatality in North Las Vegas so far this year.
