Posted: Updated:

Police were on scene of a fatal crash Monday afternoon in the northwest valley. Metro police said a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper sergeant was stopped at a red light heading west on Cheyenne Avenue at Durango Drive.

NHP said a maroon SUV heading east hit the front left side of the patrol vehicle, then also hit a medical van. 

That SUV driver may have suffered from a "medical episode" prior to the crash, NHP said. The 33 or 34-years-old driver was taken to Mountain View Hospital and died, NHP said.

The NHP trooper suffered minor injuries and was not taken to a hospital, NHP said.
