Driver killed in crash on US 95 was 19-year-old Las Vegas man

A man killed Monday morning in a northwest valley highway crash was a 19-year-old man from Las Vegas, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.

Roberto Santiago, who the Nevada Highway Patrol said was driving a Honda hatchback, died after entering southbound U.S. Highway 95 from Lake Mead Boulevard. Investigators determined that Santiago was struck by a Buick sedan while changing lanes, attempting to cut over to the fast lane, Highway Patrol spokesman Travis Smaka said.

Santiago died at University Medical Center from multiple blunt force injuries, the coroner’s office said. His death was ruled an accident.

The woman driving the Buick was hospitalized with survivable injuries, Smaka said.
