Impairment under investigation after SUV crash in southwest valley

LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Police are responding after an SUV hit a tree and rolled over in the southwest Las Vegas valley Thursday morning.

Officers responded to the intersection of El Capitan and English Falls ways around 4:45 a.m. on a report of a crash, said Lt. Bill Steinmetz with Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.

The driver appeared to lose control of a blue Nissan SUV while heading north on El Capitan, Steinmetz said.

The SUV went onto the sidewalk and hit a tree, causing it to flip. The driver was taken to a local hospital, and injuries are believed to be minor.

Nobody else was in the SUV, and no other pedestrians or vehicles were involved, according to Steinmetz. Possible impairment is under investigation.
