Posted: Updated:

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified a man who died in a crash with a NHP trooper sergeant and another vehicle in northwest Las Vegas Monday.

Shane Willey, 33, of Las Vegas died Monday afternoon, the coroner said. 

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, Willey, may have suffered from a "medical episode" prior to the crash, NHP said. He 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.
