Man pronounced dead after Henderson crash had medical episode

The Clark County coroner’s office confirmed Wednesday that a man pronounced dead earlier in the week after a single-vehicle crash in Henderson had a medical episode.

Roy Robinson, 66, died from heart disease linked to high blood pressure, the coroner’s office said.

Robinson was northbound on Seven Hills Drive near St. Rose Parkway when he crossed over the median and crashed into a tree just after 4:30 a.m, Henderson police said.

Robinson was pronounced dead at the scene. The coroner’s office ruled his death an accident, caused by heart, renal diseases and injuries to the neck and chest from the crash.

This was the ninth traffic-related fatality in Henderson this year.
