LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A 36-year-old man who was killed after a fatal crash west of the Las Vegas Strip late Wednesday night was identified by the coroner.
Raymond Camillo Jaramillo was identified as the man who was killed in the crash, the coroner said. Jaramillo's cause and manner of death were still being investigated.
According to Nevada Highway Patrol, troopers were called to West Flamingo Road near Interstate-15 at 11:28 p.m. in regards to a critical injury crash. Jaramillo, who was the driver of a Chrysler 200 passenger car, was headed west on Flamingo Road when he lost control and entered the eastbound lanes of Flamingo.
A Chrysler Town and Country minivan, headed east on Flamingo, struck the driver's side of the Chrysler 200, NHP said. Jaramillo was taken to University Medical Center Trauma, where he was later pronounced deceased.
NHP added a passenger inside the 200 was also taken to the hospital, but for non-life threatening injuries. Both occupants of the minivan also had non-life threatening injuries.
Westbound Flamingo Road at the I-15 was closed for several hours while troopers investigated, NHP said. It is unknown if impairment was a factor, but troopers believe Jaramillo was speeding. He was reportedly not wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash.
"Unrestrained driver deaths in Clark County are up over 30 percent from where we were this time last year," Trooper Jason Buratczuk said. "Especially as we approach the holidays, we don’t want any empty seats at the holiday dinner table and celebrations. Please, buckle up."
According to NHP, troopers were still investigating what caused the driver of the Chrysler to lose control of the car.
