LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A 25-year-old man is dead following a crash Monday morning on Durango Drive between Windmill Lane and Wigwam Avenue.
According to Metro police, the crash happened just before 4 a.m. and involved only one vehicle. The sole person in that vehicle was killed.
The driver’s identity was not released.
A preliminary investigation indicates a 1994 Ford Ranger pickup was southbound on Durango approaching Camero Avenue when the driver went off the road. The vehicle then re-entered the road and crossed the median before striking a water main and continuing on.
From there, the pickup went back into the road at the intersection with Wigwam, and then hit a large tree and a brick wall, according to Metro police.
The pickup came to rest in the southbound travel lanes on Durango, south of Wigwam.
The intersection of Durango and Wigwam was closed during the investigation, but all lanes are now open.
The driver’s death marks the 104th traffic-related fatality in Metro’s jurisdiction so far this year. The crash remains under investigation.
