One man is dead after a Thursday morning crash in North Las Vegas.

North Las Vegas police responded just after 5 a.m. Thursday to the intersection of Civic Center Drive and Las Vegas Boulevard North, spokeswoman Ann Cavaricci said.

Investigators said a 2011 Kia Soul ran a red light while traveling westbound on Civic Center and crashed into a Dodge Ram pickup truck in the intersection.

The 65-year-old male driver of the Kia was pronounced dead at the scene, Cavaricci said. The driver of the pickup truck was not injured.

The Regional Transportation Commission reported at 11 a.m. that the intersection had reopened.

The name of the man who died and the cause of his death will be released by the Clark County coroner’s office after his relatives have been notified.
