LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Nevada Highway Patrol said two people were killed in a crash Sunday northeast of the Las Vegas Valley.
On September 20, NHP said the single-vehicle crash happened on SR 168 and mile marker 11, which is near Glendale, about an hour northeast of the Las Vegas Valley.
NHP said the crash involved a 1995 Lexus sedan that left the roadway for an unknown reason. The driver overcorrected and crossed the eastbound lanes to the desert area off-road.
The two people in the car, a 19-year-old driver and 29-year-old passenger from California, were killed in the crash, NHP said. Investigators say both were not wearing seat belts and believe impairment played a part in the crash.
The Clark County coroner identified both men on Tuesday as Daniel Popte and Micheal Sims. Both died as a result of the crash.
The crash was reported by a passer-by, so the exact time of the crash wasn't known, NHP said.
No road closures were in place.
