The driver of a pickup was killed and three people in another vehicle were injured in a northwest Las Vegas Valley collision Monday evening, according to Las Vegas police.

The 7:02 p.m. crash happened on North Tenaya Way south of Old Mission Drive, just south of West Lake Mead Boulevard. A 2011 Nissan Titan pickup traveling northbound at a high rate of speed struck the rear end of a 2010 Audi Q7 that had just completed a U-turn, a preliminary accident report stated. The front of the Nissan struck the rear of the Audi and was redirected in a northeast direction and collided with a light pole and brick wall.

The driver of the Nissan was taken to Mountain View Hospital, where he died. The Clark County coroners’ office on Tuesday identified him as 39-year-old Cynric Moore of Las Vegas. His death was ruled an accident.

Medical personnel took four passengers from the Audi, including an infant, to University Medical Center. The injuries were classified as minor to moderate. The infant did not suffer injuries.

The driver of the Audi did not show signs of impairment.

Police said Moore’s death was the 92nd traffic-related fatality in Las Vegas jurisdiction this year.
