A 65-year-old Las Vegas man died after the car he was driving struck a wall in the west valley Tuesday morning, Las Vegas police said.
The man drove his white 2018 Hyundai Ioniq over a curb and into a wall near South Durango Drive and Eldora Avenue, a few blocks south of West Sahara Avenue, about 5:35 a.m., according to the Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Allen Larsen. He was taken to University Medical Center, where he died.
Metro said the crash was possibly related to a medical episode.
The Clark County coroner’s office identified the man as Myong Lee. His cause and manner of death were pending Tuesday afternoon.
Lee’s death will not be counted as a traffic-fatality until the coroner’s office determines his cause and manner of death, police said.
