A 42-year-old man was killed Sunday in a collision in North Las Vegas.
The man was driving a 2004 Ford Ranger pickup “at a very high rate of speed” south on Losee Road, near Gowan Avenue, North Las Vegas police said.
At 5:19 p.m., the driver drifted to the right and struck a steel power pole off the roadway. He was thrown from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Investigators believe excessive speed was a factor in the crash and are trying to determine why the vehicle left the roadway, police said.
The name of the man was not released.
