NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV (FOX5) -

North Las Vegas police said they are investigating a deadly crash Sunday morning. 

The crash occurred at 1:45 a.m. at Cheyenne Avenue and Commerce Street. 

According to Officer Aaron Patty, of North Las Vegas, the crash involved a semi-truck and a sport utility vehicle. 

Citing the preliminary investigation, police said the SUV was driving at a high rate of speed westbound on Cheyenne Avenue, approaching Commerce Street when it rear-ended a semi-truck traveling in the same direction. 

Police said the 29-year-old driver, and the only person in the SUV, was pronounced dead at the scene after a high-speed crash. He was identified by the Clark County Coroner's Office as 28-year-old Ernie Ubaldo Camarena. 

A tweet posted at about 4:30 a.m. said the intersection is partially closed. However, police later said Cheyenne is closed between Commerce and Fifth. An investigation is ongoing.

The death marked the fifth traffic-related fatality in North Las Vegas in 2018.
