LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas police were investigating a 10-vehicle crash in the east valley that left one man dead.
The crash happened at 3:40 p.m. on April 20 at Sahara Avenue south of Lamb Boulevard when a 69-year-old driver in a 1993 Toyota Camry “side swiped” cars that were in adjacent lanes, then crashed into vehicles that were already stopped at the light, creating a “ping pong effect,” police said.
The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the drive on April 27 as Moses Domingo, 69.
Ten cars were involved in the crash. Domingo was the only person in his vehicle and died on scene, police said. The driver of an overturned car was transported to Sunrise Hospital and had “minor injuries.”
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Lt. Bret Ficklin said that Domingo might have been experiencing a medical episode.
“Preliminary information reveals that it was quite possibly a medical episode that was experienced by the driver,” Ficklin said. “When you look at the circumstances of the collision, we’re fortunate that we didn’t have far more injuries.”
Damage to other vehicles ranged from extreme to minor. A 19-year-old man in one of the cars suffered "serious" injuries, police said.
This was LVMPD's 29th traffic-related fatality of 2020.
