Unrestrained Driver Ejected In Rollover Crash

Nevada Highway Patrol said it’s a lesson that every driver should always wear their seatbelt. According to CBS, Las Vegas, a man is dead after authorities say he was ejected from his car during a rollover crash.

The investigation so far revealed that on May 23, 2017 around 12:00 p.m., a green Honda Civic was traveling at a speed too fast for the conditions. The driver applied the brakes and entered a skid. The Honda continued into the east paved shoulder and the left side slammed a guard rail fence. The unrestrained driver was partially ejected and struck a guardrail post.

The car careened west of the guardrail face and then struck the guardrail again. When the car again struck a guardrail post, the driver was fully ejected. The Honda was redirected west down the off ramp and entered the raised median area where the Honda then struck a sign post. The Honda continued southwest through a chain fence and then across both travel lanes of SR 168 into the dirt shoulder where it hit a barbwire fence.

The 59 year old male driver died from his injuries from the crash, and died at the scene. Impairment is suspected but lab results are pending.

This is certainly a tragedy, but if the driver was driving impaired, it is also lucky that no other drivers were hurt during the accident. Drunk driving kills thousands of individuals every year, and the number of drunk drivers is especially high in the Las Vegas Valley.
