One man is dead in an overnight North Las Vegas crash

One man died after being thrown from his Jeep in a two-car accident about 12:30 a.m. Saturday, according to North Las Vegas police.

The accident, which also involved a sedan carrying three people, occurred at the intersection of West Lake Mead Boulevard and Texas Star Lane.

Officers found the 37-year-old man lying in the roadway unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at scene. He had not been wearing a seat belt, police said.

He was not immediately identified.

The three other men were transported to University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the Jeep was fleeing a minor crash in the parking lot of Texas Station when the deadly accident occurred, according to the police report. Police said he failed to stop for the red light as he left the parking lot, encroaching on the path of a sedan which was traveling east on Lake Mead.

Occupants of the sedan included an 18-year-old driver and two passengers ages 18 and 28.
