A Las Vegas man who died after crashing into a fire hydrant near the Strip Saturday night died of natural causes, according to the Clark County coroner.
The coroner ruled 43-year-old Winston McEwan’s cause of death was a burst aorta caused by high blood pressure.
Just before midnight, McEwan was driving his Dodge Caliber westbound on Flamingo Road near Linq Lane when he hit the fire hydrant at a slow speed, Las Vegas police said.
