The Clark County coroner’s officer has identified a Las Vegas man who was killed when he crashed into a Las Vegas police patrol vehicle.
Andrew Johnson, 31, died at the scene after he rear-ended a Metropolitan Police Department vehicle early Wednesday near Las Vegas Boulevard South and Serene Avenue.
The Metro officer who was rear-ended while waiting at a light was released from the hospital Wednesday, police said. No additional information on the officer’s condition was available early Thursday.
Because the crash involved a civilian fatality and a Metro officer, the Henderson Police Department took over the investigation, Metro said in a statement.
