A driver who died after slamming into an apartment building in northeast Las Vegas Valley on Wednesday has been identified.

The Clark County Coroner's Office, though, said the cause and manner of death for Annamaria Xochitl Velasquez, 25, were pending on Thursday.

According to Meltzer, an officer responding to the incident determined the driver died following the crash.

Metro said investigators were not sure if the driver's death was the result of a medical episode or injuries from the crash.

There were no other people inside the vehicle.
