A man’s death in June after a car crash in the east valley has been classified as a traffic-related fatality, Las Vegas police said Thursday.
Police said the Las Vegas man paused on a green signal, then swerved over a median and hit another car that was stopped at the red light on Mountain Vista. Richards was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center for his injuries and a possible medical condition. He died three days later.
Police received Richards’ autopsy report last week, which concluded that he died from the traffic collision.
Richards’ death marks the 107th traffic-related fatality the Metropolitan Police Department has investigated this year.
