1 dead after red light runner gets into crash in northwest valley

LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — A 57-year-old man is dead after a two-car crash late Tuesday night in the northwest valley, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.

Officers got a report of a crash just after 11:15 p.m. at Cimarron Road and Alexander Avenue, police said in a statement.

The investigation determined a 2018 Mazda CX-9 was heading east on Alexander approaching the intersection with Cimarron.

At the same time, a 2005 Ford Expedition was heading north on Cimarron approaching Alexander with a red light. The Ford did not stop for the red light and the two cars collided.

The driver of the Ford was not wearing a seatbelt, police say, and he was thrown from the car. That driver, identified as a 57-year-old Las Vegas man, died from his injuries.

The driver of the Mazda was taken to UMC for injuries described as moderate, and she did not show any signs of impairment, according to police.

It's the 64th traffic-related fatality in LVMPD's jurisdiction for 2019 so far.
