A man is dead and three others injured after a weekend head-on collision in a Southern Nevada road construction zone.
Nevada Highway Patrol officers say Abelardo Garcia, 29, died at the scene of the crash on State Route 160 near Winery Road in Pahrump.
Troopers say Garcia was driving a Toyota Camry near a construction zone about 6 a.m. Sunday. The vehicle struck traffic cones that shifted the lane to one side, and then collided with an oncoming Ford F-250 pickup truck.
Two female passengers in Garcia’s car were airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital in serious condition.
The driver of the pickup truck was treated and released from the hospital.
Garcia was not wearing a seat belt.
