Boulder and Sahara fatal

A multi-vehicle crash in the east valley left one person dead and seriously injured another on Jan. 12, 2019.

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The Clark County coroner identified the bicyclist who died in a fatal crash involving two other vehicles in the east valley on Saturday morning.

Lyle Neff II, 52, died from blunt force injuries, according to the coroner. His death was ruled as an accident.

Las Vegas Metropolitan police said officers were called to East Sahara Avenue and Fremont Street, near where Fremont turns into Boulder Highway, at around 12:14 a.m. The crash involved a bicyclist, a motorcyclist and a car.

Witnesses told police the motorcyclist, identified by Metro Police as 35-year-old Daniel Althoff, was headed south on Fremont Street and was approaching the intersection at Sahara Avenue.

Neff was riding his bicycle west across Fremont Street inside the marked crosswalk, police said. Althoff and Neff collided. The impact from the collision caused Neff to be ejected from his bike and he crashed into the side of a 2016 Nissan Sentra.

According to Las Vegas police, the Sentra was headed west on Sahara Avenue at the time of the collision. One of the Sentra's occupants sustained minor injuries and the driver was uninjured. The driver of the Sentra stayed at the scene with police.

Neff was taken to Sunrise Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, police said. Althoff was seriously injured and impairment was suspected on his part. Althoff was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center for driving under the influence.

This was Metro Police's fifth traffic-related fatality for 2019.
