1 dead in Sunday morning crash


A Las Vegas man died early Sunday morning when his SUV rolled over on Beltway 215.

Nevada Highway Patrol reports the 24-year-old man was driving an SUV described as a Jeep Cherokee south on the beltway.

Just south of Sahara Avenue he went off the roadway and his SUV rolled over.

The driver was sent to University Medical Center, where he later died.

A Highway patrol spokesman said he was wearing a seat belt. Troopers suspect both speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.

The SUV did not have any other occupants, and no other vehicles were involved.

The man’s name, as well as the cause and manner of his death, will be released by the Clark County coroner’s office once his family has been notified.
