The Las Vegas man who died last week after two vehicles collided in the western valley has been identified by the Clark County coroner.
Javier Vargas Sr., 48, died May 7 of multiple blunt-force injuries at the scene of the crash. Police said a Jeep Wrangler was speeding south on Flamingo Road as a Toyota Sienna, driven by Vargas, was turning left onto Flamingo Road from Marble Ridge Drive.
The Jeep struck Vargas’ vehicle and both rolled over. The 17-year-old driver of the Jeep was hospitalized with minor injuries, police said. It is not clear whether any charges were filed in connection with the fatal crash.
