NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV (FOX5) -

North Las Vegas police said they are investigating a crash that killed a young man Monday afternoon. 

Officer Eric Leavitt said the single-vehicle crash killed a 21-year-old passenger near Cheyenne Avenue and Civic Center Drive at about 5:30 p.m. 

Citing the preliminary investigation, police said a 2011 black BMW four-door sedan was traveling south on Civic Center when it crashed into a pole in the center median.

Medical personnel pronounced the 21-year-old passenger dead at the scene. The 21-year-old driver suffered minor injuries and was not transported to the hospital. 

No other people or vehicles were involved in the crash, police said. 

Investigators believe the slick roads as a result of the rain contributed to the crash. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor. 

This marked the second traffic-related fatality in North Las Vegas in 2018.
