One person was killed and another was hospitalized after two vehicles collided Monday afternoon in the western Las Vegas Valley, police said.

Police were called to the intersection of West Flamingo Road and Marble Ridge Drive, near Desert Inn Road, at 3:40 p.m., Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Grant Rogers said.

A Jeep Wrangler was speeding south on Flamingo as a Toyota Sienna turned left onto Flamingo from Marble Ridge, according to police.

The Jeep struck the Toyota, and both rolled over. The 17-year-old driver of the Jeep was hospitalized with minor injuries, police said. The driver of the Toyota, a 48-year-old man, died at the scene.

The Clark County coroner’s office will identify the man who died after his next of kin are notified. His death marks the 41st traffic fatality in Metro’s jurisdiction this year.
